Breeland is headed to Oregon

TE Jacob Breeland

Mission Viejo (Calif.) Trabuco Hills athlete Jacob Breeland took an unofficial visit to Oregon late last week and decided to pull the trigger Monday night.

Jacob Breeland is a big receiver who will likely convert to tight end in college. He had a big junior season hauling in 36 balls for 753 yards and 11 touchdowns. At 6-6, 205 pounds, he's a matchup nightmare and is a very nice early pickup for the Ducks.

The jumbo athlete took an unofficial visit to Eugene last Thursday and Friday and said he was blown away by the Duck campus.

"I loved it there, it was incredible," Breeland said. "The facilities were incredible but it was more than that. I loved the coaching staff and the academic support. The help they provide you with and the tutoring program is really special.

"I also love the offense and I think it fits me really well. They want to move me around and I'll be a tight end and also play some slot receiver. Coach Osborne, the TE coach, was my lead recruiter and I like him a lot. We spent a lot of time together on the visit and I like Coach Helfrich a lot as well. It was just a great overall fit and I couldn't pass it up."

Breeland said he was tempted to commit on the visit but wanted to come home and think things over a bit.

"I wanted to talk things over with my parents and then prayed about it all weekend," Breeland said. "I actually committed last night but I guess word just got out tonight. I wanted to commit early so I could just focus on school and my senior year.

"Now I don't have to stress over my recruitment and it's definitely a big weight off my back. I'm 100% committed to the Ducks and have no plans to look around or camp anywhere else. The only visits I'll be taking are to Oregon. It feels great to be a Duck right now and I'm just so thankful for the opportunity." Recommended Stories
