Hanson commits to Oregon

Oregon picked up it's third offensive line commitment in as many days on Sunday in Eureka (Calif.) offensive guard Jake Hanson.

Eureka offensive guard Jake Hanson verbally committed to Oregon on Sunday, becoming the third offensive line commitment in as many days for the Ducks and eighth overall for the 2015 class.

Hanson was in Eugene on Saturday on an unofficial visit and posted pictures of his experience throughout the day on his Twitter account. He later tweeted his decision to play his college ball for Oregon.

"I knew after I saw the facilities, toured the campus and met with the coaching staff that I was pretty set in my mind that I was going to be a Duck," he said. Hanson notified both head coach Mark Helfrich and offensive line coach Steve Greatwood of his decision, speaking with head man first.

"He was all fired up," Hanson said of Helfrich. "So was I. After that, I called Coach Greatwood and he felt the same way. He was pretty pumped up."

Greatwood has every reason to be fired up after landing three commitments in three days.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound three-star prospect joins Brady Aiello, Calvin Throckmorton, Shane Lemieux and Zach Okun as members of the 2015 offensive line class for Oregon.

Aware of the talent pool he is joining, Hanson is excited to compete with them.

"I know this is going to be a special class having five of the top O-linemen in the country here," he said. "I'm excited about it."

Hanson picked up his Oregon offer last month and held offers from Oregon State, California and Arizona as well.

He doesn't plan on taking visits to other programs and is relieved to have the process over with.

"Now I can just worry about getting better and starting my last year of high school," Hanson said.
