More Offers For The Class of 2014

Oregon has continued to extend offers to several talented athletes of the Class of 2014 as they look ahead to the next recruiting class. Who do the Ducks see as part of their program in the future?

With signing day firmly behind them, Oregon has already extended several offers to talented athletes from the Class of 2014. We previewed the first set of offers, which you can read here. Let's look at the most recent offers. OL Sam Jones – Thunderridge HS, (Littleton, Colo.)

At 6-5, 275-pounds, Jones was recently offered by Oregon. He is quick on his feet and a good blocker. While he may not be as physically imposing as some of the other offers the Ducks have out for offensive lineman, Jones is athletic and a persistent downfield blocker based off of his film. He also has offers from Colorado and Colorado State.

OLB/DE Bryson Allen-Williams – Cedarwood HS, (Ellenwood, Ga)

Oregon joined the nearly 20 other schools that have offered Allen-Williams recently. With 92 tackles and 18 sacks in 2012, Williams has been on several radar screens nationwide. Ranked the 20th outside linebacker by Scout.com, the 6-2, 213-pound Allen-Williams delivers punishing hits as he explodes off the ends. If he doesn't get the tackle, he will at least bring a lot of pressure which leads to turnovers. His quick moves off the line after the ball is snapped allow him to penetrate the opposing line and get to the ball quickly.

RB/S Budda Baker – Bellevue HS, (Bellevue, Wash.)

One of the more exciting prospects out of the northwest, Baker is a 5-10, 175-pound running back/safety out of Bellevue HS in Washington. He shows talent on both ends of the ball, all tied to his speed. Defensively, his explosive agility gives him an edge when making open field tackles or for luring in a dangerous throw from an opposing quarterback that he can turn into a turnover. But, offensively, he mixes that same speed with swift moves that lead to missed tackles and extra yards. His speed also makes him a dangerous special teams player on the return end. With De'Anthony Thomas entering his senior season in 2014, Baker could be the next to step in line as a threat in the return game if he chooses Oregon. Baker holds offers from nine Pac-12 schools.

MLB Kain Daub – Sandalwood HS, (Jacksonville, Fla.)

The 6-3, 230-pound Daub was an LSU commit until just before the new year, which opened up the door for several programs to pursue him. Rated the fifth best middle linebacker by Scout.com, Daub plays with a lot of intensity on film. He is very adept at reading the quarterback and knowing where the ball is at all times and his hits pack a punch. He is a very explosive player and looks like he can be a nightmare for an offensive line to handle. Daub recently named Oregon as one of his top five schools in an interview with Scout.com's Amy Campbell.

RB Christian McCaffrey – Valor Christian HS, (Highlands Ranch, Colo.)

McCaffrey is the 38th ranked running back according to Scout but he also has talent as a receiver. He has offers from over a dozen schools including seven from the Pac-12 alone. With good hands, McCaffrey looks dangerous if he gets loose over the middle as a receiver and as a running back, he displays good agility. His separation speed would be desired by any of the teams after him, and at 6-0, 190-pounds he has good size to combine with his speed when running through the tackles. His familiarity with the spread offense is a plus as well.

TE Ian Bunting ¬– Hinsdale Central HS, (Hinsdale, Ill.)

Bunting received his offer from Oregon last week and is planning on tripping out to Oregon in April according to a report from Scout.com's Allen Trieu. The Midwest tight end stands 6-6, 220-pounds and while he may not look like a player with breakaway speed, he's been effective as a deep threat for Hinsdale. He takes long strides to get down field and beat the defense and his size makes him an easy target to hit. He can throw a pretty good block as well, something that is a must for an Oregon tight end given the system.

OL Jordan Sims – Homewood HS, (Homewood, Ala.)

Sims, much like Orlando Brown, is a sight to behold just based on his size. At 6-4, 340-pounds already, he holds several offers from schools in SEC country, but also holds offers from Pac-12 schools in UCLA and Oregon. From watching his film, there isn't much that you can do to get by him as he looks like a man amongst boys in most cases, unless you aim low. Even then, Sims is able to use his size to bowl over a defender. He is good at picking up blocks and would be a big asset in short yardage situations for creating space.
