RB Wilson among visitors for Oregon win

The Oregon Ducks rolled to another blowout win over the rival Washington Huskies on Saturday night.

The 52-21 victory was a big night for the Ducks on the field, and the program hosted several skill-position players on recruiting visits, highlighted by running back commit Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto).

After a trip to Notre Dame last month, three-star athlete Juwaan Williams (Tucker, Ga./Tucker) made the cross-country trip to check out the Oregon program. Williams is yet another athlete that fits the mold of what the Ducks want -- he can play on either side of the ball.

Williams has a visit to Clemson scheduled in two weeks.

Four-star wide receiver John Ross (Long Beach, Calif./Jordan) was also on campus for his first official visit. Ross has visited Washington and UCLA unofficially, and he has several ties to the Huskies program. On Saturday, Ross was in the stands to watch the Ducks -- perhaps the biggest challenger to the Huskies -- beat the Huskies for the ninth consecutive time.

Three Class of 2014 recruits from Arizona were on hand as teammates Dionte Sykes and J.R. Hunt (Chandler, Ariz./Chandler) were both on hand to get an up close look at the Oregon program. Sykes, an ESPN 300 Watch List wide receiver and Hunt, a safety, have both heard from the Ducks early on and are hoping for an offer from the Pac-12 leaders.

After unofficially visiting Arizona State last week, 2014 linebacker Santana Sterling (Chandler, Ariz./Hamilton) was in Eugene to see one of his top programs in person.

In-state recruits still searching for an Oregon offer that were also in attendance included Wilsonville (Ore.) teammates Johnny Ragin III, a three-star linebacker, and three-star athlete Tanner Shipley.

Ducks' offensive line commit Doug Brenner (Portland, Ore./Jesuit) was back in Eugene for another unofficial visit as well.
