What's left for the Ducks?
By Brandon P. Oliver
After getting commitments from Tyree Robinson (left) and Tyrell Robinson recently, expect Oregon to devote most of its remaining 2013 recruiting resources to defense.
After snaring commitments from twin brothers Tyrell Robinson and Tyree Robinson (San Diego, Calif./Lincoln) last week, the Oregon Ducks now have 11 verbal commitments for the class of 2013.
With a roster full of young talent, the Ducks will likely only sign 17-19 players in February.
Even if both twins wind up on defense, the Ducks' class is still heavy on offensive prospects. Of the remaining spots, expect two-thirds of them to be filled with players that will likely wind up on defense.
