Oregon Football Recruiting: Ducks Land Four-Star Wide Receiver Jalen Brown

The Oregon Ducks undoubtedly have not only the most unique uniforms in college football, but also one of the most prolific offenses the game has ever seen.

On Monday night, the Ducks added a 2014 wide receiver prospect, Jalen Brown, to continue their offensive firepower for the future.

The Arizona native is a four-star recruit and the No. 20 overall wide receiver in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite player rankings. Brown chose the Ducks over Vanderbilt, Wisconsin and Oregon State.

The 6-2, 187 pound receiver is a 2014 U.S. Army All-American and deservedly so. Although he does not have the great break-away speed on the outside, his ball skills, ability to catch the ball and awareness to earn yards after the catch are what stand out about his playing ability.

Oregon has been relatively quiet on the recruiting trail so far this season, but Brown is a big boost to the class as he is just commitment No. 10 for the Ducks and the only wide receiver currently pledged to Oregon for the 2014 class.

Overall, the Ducks currently have the 39th ranked recruiting class in the nation, according to 247Sports, but they are No. 4 in the PAC-12.
