Oregon Ducks Add Receiver Recruit Darren Carrington

Oregon secured an excellent receiver recruit Wednesday night in Darren Carrington of San Diego (Calif.) Horizon High School. SB Nation's Derrell Warren profiled Carrington in May.

Here's a snippet:

Carrington uses long strides to eat up a defender's cushion but isn't a true burner as his speed tends to taper off a bit after his initial burst off the line. A very natural pass catcher, Carrington has soft hands and effortlessly plucks the ball away from his frame. Combine that with his vertical jump, and he is tremendous in his ability to go up in the air and make spectacular catches. His ball skills are truly elite as he is able to give his quarterback a greater margin for error with his capacity to make plays over defenders on off target throws and 50/50 balls. Possesses the body control to redirect his momentum in the air and contort his body to adjust to poorly thrown passes.

Be sure to check out the rest.

Oregon now sits at five verbal commitments for the class of 2013, four of which are considered excellent recruits in Carrington, Tyner, Voeller and Wilson.
