After a somewhat slow start, Oregon is on a nice recruiting run right now and just added one of the top athletes in the region in Moses Robinson-Carr.

Carr committed to the Ducks as a tight end but we like him quite a bit as a defensive end as well. He has a great frame, is a good all around athlete and shows a ton of upside. 

He's all of 6-foot-5, 230 pounds and has the frame to carry another 25-30 pounds with ease without losing any of his speed or quickness. He's going to develop in to a very good blocker because of his natural toughness and has shown steady improvement as a pure pass catcher as well.

"Oregon just felt like home to me," Robinson-Carr said. "I have a good relationship with Coach (Tom) Osborne (TE Coach) and the rest of the staff including Coach Helfrich. I visited last month and it just felt like home to me.

"I was looking for that family vibe and I got that at Oregon with not just the staff but the players on the team as well. Oregon has something special going right now and I'm very excited to be a part of that."

The opportunity to play early was another bonus for Robinson-Carr.

"They'll be graduating three tight ends after this season so I'll have a chance to step in and compete for playing time right away,"  Robinson-Carr said. "My plan all along was to commit sometime in the summer before my senior season so I can focus on my H.S team and helping us win a championship.

"Oregon just fit me perfectly. I had some other great options and it came down to the Ducks and UCLA but I just felt like Oregon fit me the best. On my visit, the coaches sat down and talked with me for two hours about academics and really emphasized that and that was important for me. 

"I'm super relieved right now to have this decision out of the way. I had been thinking about doing it for a while but the timing just felt right. My commitment is 100% solid, I don't know if I'll take any other visits but my commitment is firm and nothing will change that. I'm a Duck and very happy to have the process over so I can focus on my team and school."

Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC and Utah were just a few other schools who had also offered the talented athlete.
