"He (Laidet) was given an offer last weekend and gave a verbal commitment," Petrik told eDuck Sports. "Of course the official commitment will go in on February 7th."
Laidet was Oregon' 2A Defensive Player of the Year for a team that finished 11-2, losing to Cascade Christian in the 2A championship game.
Not only is he a great football player, but he is also plays basketball and participates in track during the spring. Laidet first caught the attention of the Oregon coaches by attending Oregon's football camp, and offensive line coach Steve Greatwood has kept in contact.
According to Petrik, Laidet is a workhorse in the weightroom and power cleaned 300 pounds. So that could mean He may see time as linebacker, defensive end or tight end for the Ducks.
No verbal offer is binding until a letter of intent is sent to the University. The earliest a National Letter of Intent can be sent this year is February 7th.
