For the second time this week, the Oregon Ducks offered a star defensive recruit from SEC country. While trying to improve at the linebacker position, the Ducks continue to venture into the South in an effort to expand their recruiting reach. Early this week, the Ducks offered fast rising LB Zach Cunningham (Pinson, Ala./Pinson Valley).

Today Oregon wide receivers coach Scott Frost stopped by (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) and left after offering one of the elite defenders in the state. LB Trey Johnson (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) will be honored at a ceremony on Thursday to recognize him as the region's defensive player of the year.

The former Auburn commit will have to decide if the late offer from Oregon is enough to get him across the country for a visit. Ohio State appears to be in a good spot for Johnson, but -- as always -- if the Ducks get him on campus, they could potentially become a player for the four-star LB.
