Dontre Wilson is a Duck, and few can fault him for his choice.

The ESPN 150 athlete from DeSoto, Texas, is an absolutely ideal fit for Oregon’s offensive scheme. At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Wilson best fits in the college game as a spread running back who can also split out in the slot and find ways to get the ball in the open field.

Sounds familiar, right? That’s exactly what Oregon did last season with De'Anthony Thomas, a 5-foot-9, 173-pound back who scored 18 total touchdowns and earned Pac 12 co-offensive freshman of the year honors.
