"I wanted to wait," Crosby said. "But I realized I loved everything Oregon had to offer and wanted to start putting my efforts into trying to make the transition and learn their schemes."
Originally born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Crosby says it came down to the Utes and the Ducks but the opportunity to become fully independent in Eugene and be on his own for once was too intriguing.
"Utah is an amazing school," he said. "But the thing that put Oregon over the top had a lot to do with me wanting to move away and try to be more independent."
The 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman was recruited mostly by offensive line coach Steve Greatwood and director of player personnel Jim Fisher.
"I like how they give the same respect to their players as they would want their players to give them," he said. "Everyone on the staff was extremely respectful and I got to meet a lot of players and they all had positive feedback about the staff as well."
Crosby becomes Oregon's second commitment in the 2014 class.
