Jeremy Crabtree RecruitingNation 

With Mark Helfrich's firing, Oregon's top 30 recruiting class is now in limbo. The Ducks have 14 commitments, the No. 27 class in the RecruitingNation national rankings and three ESPN 300 commitments. The highest-ranked recruits in Oregon's class are No. 14 athlete Jaylon Redd of Rancho Cucamonga (California) High School and No. 6 tight end Tre' McKitty of Bradenton (Florida) IMG Academy.

Redd picked Oregon over Nebraska and UCLA, while McKitty picked the Ducks over Florida State and Florida.
