Despite the enormous impact that youth had on the Oregon football team this past season, more talent will be coming soon and several players will be expected to contribute immediately in 2013.
The Ducks have more depth than ever before, but head coach Chip Kelly has proven that if you're ready to play, you'll see the field. Take WR Bralon Addison, for example. Or De'Anthony Thomas in 2011.
It's not just offensive players, either, as true freshmen DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead both saw playing time on the defensive line this season.
It's a small recruiting class thus far, with just 12 players committed, but don't be surprised to see Oregon close strong for 2013.
As for now, here are five recruits who will likely see the field as true freshman in the 2013 season.
Note: The Ducks picked up a recent commitment from LB Joe Walker, who has a chance to play next season. But because he's coming from a junior college, he wasn't included on this list.
