We knew when Dan Lanning was employed as the pinnacle coach of the Oregon Geese he would have a optimistic impact on recruiting, hoping he would construct upon the success Mario Cristobal left behind in Eugene.
We didn’t fairly know he would have the ability to make such a big effect this early although.
After closing the 2022 recruiting cycle on a excessive observe with the addition of five-star offensive deal with Josh Conerly and four-star extensive receiver Kyler Kasper, the Geese made a splash within the 2023 cycle as effectively, including five-star quarterback Dante Moore final week and four-star cornerback Caleb Presley just a few days earlier than that. With these additions, Oregon vaulted up the ESPN recruiting rankings. Right here’s the place they stand:

Ohio State Buckeyes
Penn State Nittany Lions
Pac-12 rank: 1 of 12

New head coach Dan Lanning led Georgia’s championship protection final yr, however now focuses on attempting to construct an identical unit with the Geese. He’s assembling a gifted group for the secondary led by Presley, a rangy nook who could be a playmaker in protection and doesn’t hesitate to assist the run. CB Cole Martin was one other good pickup, as he possesses good toes and upside, and CB Kodi Decambra likes to compete and may as a minimum rapidly be a productive particular groups contributor. Regardless of his sturdy defensive background, Lanning’s first full class at Oregon is outlined by promising offensive expertise. An enormous win was QB Dante Moore, because the five-star recruit has a fast launch and good toes and shows good accuracy. The Geese even have landed some massive targets for his or her passing assault within the 6-foot-Three Ashton Cozart, who’s lengthy and quick and posted a laser-timed 4.45 40 on the Dallas Below Armour camp, and Jurrion Dickey, who had an MVP efficiency on the UC Report Elite camp in Oakland, California, this spring.
