The Oregon Ducks announced the introduction of brand new recruiting website, OregonGridiron.com, on Friday. 

And it looks awesome. 

The site is full of visuals and aesthetics that will make any football fan, not just Oregon Ducks fans, excited.  

The front page of the Ducks' new site features a short highlight film titled "Welcome to the Future of Football," which features the fast-paced offense and highlights from last year's Fiesta Bowl win over the Kansas State Wildcats. 

The video alone is enough to get recruits ready to sign their letters of intent. 

Other site features include virtual tours of the Ducks locker room, athletic and academic facilities, as well as the Oregon University campus as a whole.

According to Oregon's press release about the unveiling of the new site, the web developer put in 50 hidden gems that web users can discover.

"We were extremely excited to team up with the University of Oregon once again to create a rich interactive experience showcasing their mind-blowing football and educational facilities", said Ryan Martindale, Executive Creative Director at Super Top Secret. "We pulled out all the stops on this one. We leaned on our entire team from concept and design to production and development in order to bring our shared vision to life."

The new OregonGridiron features several different experiences within the site, including multiple photo and video galleries, and over 50 hidden hotspots for fans to discover throughout the site.

The new website for Oregon is part of a continuing rebranding effort by the team, which also included a new football facility that debuted in August, according to Complex

Here are just some of the things that the new facility included, according to the Complex report, which are all heavily featured on the new website: 

  • A 25,000-square-foot weight room
  • A locker room that features personalized lockers equipped with ventilation systems designed to eliminate smells
  • A barbershop
  • A players' lounge that features a pool table, two foosball tables (with kickers made to look like Oregon players), and a large terrace
  • A "War Room" that only 40 people within the football program can access

Oregon is also obviously known for its jerseys, which change every game. 

As the Ducks continue to pull in some of the top recruits in the country, this website only makes Eugene look that much more attractive to players across the country.
