Oregon leaves a lasting impression on 4-star athlete Shavar Young Jr

This weekend, the Oregon football program hosted numerous elite prospects for both official and unofficial visits. Amid the excitement, DuckTerritory.com interviewed 4-star athlete Shavar Young Jr. from Tennessee, part of the 2026 recruiting class.


Young highlighted that what stood out most was “meeting with the coaches and seeing how they operated and would use me in their defense.”


He also appreciated the time spent with coaches Wadood, Hampton, Boyd, and Lanning, describing them as “real down to Earth coaches” who inspire strong commitment.

On Wednesday, the College Football Recruiting Podcast featured Director of Scouting Andrew Ivins and National Analysts Cooper Petagna and Tom Loy. As usual, they discussed the latest updates on top prospects and their potential destinations.

The official visits for one of the nation’s top safety prospects, Faheem Delane, have been scheduled for some time. However, Delane still needs to gather more information before making his college decision, and the timing of that decision is still uncertain.

In game two of pool play, No. 3 Oregon will take on No. 4 USC at 2:30 PM at Scottsdale Stadium in a matchup that may decide who advances to the next round of tournament play. The Trojans come into the tournament with a 28-27 overall record but more importantly, they’re 17-12 in the Pac-12. They are fresh off a final series sweep of Utah that dropped the Utes from fourth in the conference to seventh and are now the Ducks’ first opponent on Wednesday.


USC got off to a rocky start this season, losing nine of its first 11 games, including two matchups against TCU. From there, they’ve begun to turn things around. They ended up winning a series against No. 6 Oregon State and beating another ranked opponent in UC-Irvine.
