2018 is big for Oregon talent

Talent in the state of Oregon continues to be on the rise in 2018. Here is an early look at in-state targets to keep an eye on.

The early Scout rankings are in and the state of Oregon has six four star athletes currently holding Oregon State offers.  Most years Oregon has one, maybe two four-star recruits, so six in the 2018 class is unprecedented.  The Beavers have extended early offers to all of them, and while the staff works to close out the 2017 class, it is never too early to start thinking ahead to next years signing class.

Hufanga has grown up in the shadows of Reser Stadium and is currently a standout at Corvallis (Ore.) Crescent Valley.  His brother played for the Beavers and Talanoa has made many unofficial visits to campus this past year.  He is familiar with OSU and the family atmosphere, but big time offers continue to pile up, including the entire PAC 12 (except Stanford, Cal and Colorado) and traditional powers such as Notre Dame and Michigan.

Cota is the son of Oregon legend Chad Cota, but Chase isn't necessarily a slam dunk for the Ducks.  He has been to Oregon State several times and has built a strong relationship with the coaches. Coach Brennan was leading his recruitment however so it will be important for the new wide receiver coach to come in and make an early impact.

Winston's older brother is currently at Oregon, so he is well versed in the recruiting process.  With offers from the two instate programs, Winston is starting to see things pick up as he continues to hear from schools such as Washington, UCLA, USC, Arizona and Vanderbilt, among others.

Tigard's star cornerback is on fire with recruiting.  Currently sitting with double-digit offers from across the country, Lenzy is definitely one to watch this upcoming summer.

Offensive line is always a big need for the Beavers and being able to keep a local big guy in-state is a big priority.  The Beavers will have a battle on their hands with Jaramillo who will undoubtedly see his offer list climb during the spring and summer months.

Lowe is currently sitting on offers from both Oregon and Oregon State as well as Boise State.  Many insiders believe Oregon is the team to beat, but the 4-star ATH/WR should see his stock rise during the 7-on-7 season.
