Oregon in some #BlueChipBattles

RecruitingNation has summoned its writers from around the country to compile a list of the top 10 battles for elite football recruits leading up to February's signing day.

The Ducks, of course, are in several battles to complete their class. Receiver Ricky Seals-Jones (Sealy, Texas/Sealy) is looking at Oregon, as are cornerback Mackensie Alexander (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee), receiver Robert Foster (Monaca, Pa./Central Valley) and defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly County). None of these recruits are in the Ducks' region, but Oregon can make some inroads.

With a run of seven commitments in the span of six weeks ending July 2, Oregon was on a recruiting roll. Since that time the Ducks have been stagnant while USC and Washington have cleaned up.

Oregon has never been a fast starter in recruiting. Heading into the season with eight commitments is the norm for the Ducks. With many of their top prospects off the board, the Ducks have had to regroup and move some targets up their board.

Quarterback: The Ducks will likely stick with what they have and are in pursuit of quarterbacks for the class of 2014.
Coming off arguably the best back-to-back recruiting classes in program history, the Oregon Ducks are at it again. With a growing reputation as a recruiting heavyweight, Oregon has become more selective and patient with its scholarship offers.

Compared to other schools, the Ducks got off to a slow start in the 2013 recruiting cycle. The Ducks did manage to earn early commitments from the top two in-state players in offensive lineman Evan Voeller (West Linn, Ore./West Linn) and running back Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha).

In the span of eight days, the Ducks' recruiting class went from three to seven after hosting their camp last week. Athlete Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon), kicker/punter Matt Wogan (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge), receiver Darren Carrington (San Diego, Calif./Horizon Christian) and tight end John Mundt (Modesto, Calif./Central Catholic) all committed in recent days, following running back Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto), who committed in late April.
