With Scott Frost being promoted to offensive coordinator and Matt Lubick being hired as the new wide receivers' coach, there has been plenty of news surrounding Oregon's WR recruiting lately.

Long-time Ducks WR commit Darren Carrington (San Diego/Horizon) is taking official visits elsewhere as he tries to decide on his future, the Ducks didn't waste any time in snatching up one of the top WR recruits in the West. After finally receiving a football scholarship offer from the Ducks, Semper Fidelis All-American WR Devon Allen (Phoenix/Brophy Prep) committed to the Ducks. Allen had offers from Florida State, Stanford, Texas, UCLA and many more due to his status as an elite hurdler along with his football talent. Similar to how Florida State handled Allen's recruitment, Allen was initially only given a track and field scholarship offer from Oregon. With Carrington looking around, new Ducks coach Mark Helfrich offered Allen a football scholarship to Oregon. Despite the delay, Allen pulled the trigger on Friday.

Allen's commitment was the first under Helfrich and gives the Ducks two commits at wide receiver. If Carrington decides to stick with his commitment, the Ducks will be thrilled to have the two on board as future weapons. The Ducks have a couple of commits in the class that could make the switch to WR if need be. Tyree Robinson (San Diego/Lincoln) is slotted to play defensive back in Eugene, but like his twin brother Tyrell Robinson (San Diego/Lincoln) and ATH Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon), the No. 273 player in the ESPN 300 can move to offense if the depth chart necessitates the move.
