Oregon currently has two commitments from in the 2021 class
« on: August 02, 2019, 12:07:28 PM »
 After visiting Oregon last week for the Ducks Saturday Night Live camp, a four star wide receiver has de committed from a Big Ten school. Baltimore M.D. Mount Saint Joseph 2021 wide receiver Dont e Thornton tweeted on Thursday that he was no longer committed to Penn State.

The elite wide receiver had originally committed to Penn State in early February of this year. Thornton posted the decommitment in a note on twitter, saying

First off I want to thank Coach Franklin and the entire Penn State coaching staff and family for all the love they have provided me during my commitment. Truly after countless hours of thinking with my family and coaches about this, I would like to announce that I am ReOpening my Recruitment to explore and weigh all my options. Penn State will always stay in the picture but I just wanna make sure that I make the right decision for myself and my family so Please Respect My Decision I Have Made!
With much love
Donte Thornton Jr

Thornton was one of the standouts of Oregon s Saturday Night Live recruiting event this past weekend. The receiver battled Oregon commits Johnny Wilson and Kris Hutson as the top receivers at the event and Thornton grabbed a number of passes that excited the hundreds in attendance.

The wide receiver is ranked in the 2021 247Sports Composite rankings as the No. 38 prospect overall and the No. 4 wide receiver in the class. 247Sports East analyst Briah Dohn compares Thornton to Kenny Golladay of the Detroit Lions.

Long, wiry frame but needs to add strength. Releases off the line well and gets into route quickly. Knows how to set up defensive backs. Locates ball well and is sure handed. Possession receiver with big play capability. Has deceptive speed. Runs 4.63 in 40. Attacks ball in air. Good body control and flexibility. Legitimate red zone threat. Needs to tighten his route running out of breaks. Must get stronger in the upper body. High level player for elite Power 5 program. Second or third round NFL draft potential. Brian Dohn.

Oregon currently has two commitments from in the 2021 class with Harbor City Calif. Narbonne athlete Payton Pritchard Jersey  Anthony Beavers Jr and Rochester N.Y. East athlete Seven McGee. McGee projects as a running back but also can play wide receiver.
