The Oregon Ducks and their football program have become an instant favorite to land former quarterback Connor Cook, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Cook is a top-five recruit nationally in his class, according a report by 247Sports.com.
Cook, a 6-foot-5, 210-pounder from the University of Minnesota, is ranked the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2017 class by Rivals.com, and No. 8 overall prospect by 247 Sports.
The Ducks have also added quarterback Zach Maynard from Texas Christian University.
The 6-2, 208-pound Maynard, a two-time All-Big 12 honoree, is rated the No 1 pro-style quarterback in the country by Scout.com and No 3 prospect in Michigan.
The Longhorns are also expected to make a commitment from wide receiver Jake Raulerson, a junior from Florida State.
The two-star wide receiver, a consensus four-star recruit by Rivals, has been rated the fifth-best wide receiver in the 2018 class by Scout and No 5 overall by 247.
The 5-11, 185-pound Raulers father, Kevin, played for Oregon from 2003 to 2017.
Oregon has been active on the recruiting trail recently with former Duck quarterback Connor Webb, a 2017 commit.
The Ducks have a total of eight commitments in the class of 2021, according the Associated Press.
