Mark Helfrich will need help from his staff in January to finish out his first full recruiting class with a bang.

Committed

Jalen Brown

Brown is a 4-star wide receiver who's ranked No. 142 overall. The U.S. Army All-American is ranked as the No. 23 WR. Brown hails from Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe.

He's 6'2'' and weighs 190 pounds.

Brown graduated from high school early, and, in anticipation of enrolling at Oregon in January, he signed a financial aid agreement with Oregon in November.

 

Charles Nelson

Nelson is a 3-star athlete from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze who holds over 20 offers. He is ranked as the No. 40 athlete in the country and has been recruited at running back, wide receiver and defensive back.

Despite checking in at just 5'8.5," 170 pounds, Nelson was a high priority for a number of top programs due to his elite speed. Nelson is the type of player Oregon likes to sign because of his potential impact on offense, defense or special teams.

 

Targets  

John Smith

The 5-star athlete is considered to be future safety, but has the potential to be a star on offense as well.

 

Analysis

Brown is among the top receivers in the country and will give the Ducks a big target to block and catch the ball. Nelson is more a utility player than a true receiver, but we'll put him here for now.

After Budda Baker dropped out of the class the Ducks did well to replace him with the Florida speedster.

Smith is likely destined for a spot on defense, but Oregon has a history of taking its most talented athletes and putting them on offense.
