Hanson received the offer from offensive line coach Steve Greatwood after the veteran coach stopped in and watched him workout.
"I never thought I would get an offer from Oregon," Hanson said. "Now that I have one it's really exciting."
Hanson spoke with Greatwood around 5:30 Monday evening.
"It was fairly quick," Hanson said of the phone conversation. "He just said that from what he heard from the people he talked to that I was a standup guy, that I would fit in fine at Oregon, and that he wants me to be a Duck."
Now armed with the offer, Hanson said it will impact his recruitment significantly.
"I've still got to take visits to places and make sure I see all my options, but Oregon is looking pretty good right now that for sure,"
Hanson will visit Oregon at the end of June after attending a wedding.
