The Oregon Ducks have the nation's No. 3 recruiting class, according to Rivals, bolstered by an elite collection of defensive back talent.
Oregon has earned commitments from top-10 positional talents in cornerback MyKael Wright and safety Jeremiah Criddell, heavily recruited safety Trikweze Bridges and junior college defensive back Elijah Blades, the No. 1 cornerback in the country.
This week, however, the Ducks received some hope that the group might get even better.
On Monday, consensus four-star cornerback Chris Steele, the nation's No. 6 player at his position, announced his decommitment from the USC Trojans.
