The Oregon Ducks received their first commitment for the 2015 class on Tuesday evening as four-star offensive guard Zach Okun surprisingly committed to the Ducks over Notre Dame, USC and Washington.

The California native had been considered a heavy USC lean without Washington and Notre Dame in the mix, but after visiting Oregon on Monday, Okun decided to pull the surprise and commit to the Ducks after only receiving the offer from Oregon in December.

Okun stated that he felt at home on his visit to Oregon and everyone felt like family. He also said that his recruitment process is finished and that he is 100 percent committed to Oregon and will not take any other visits.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive lineman is rated as the seventh best offensive guard in the country and the 26th best player from the state of California for the class of 2015. Okun’s biggest advantages as a player come in the game where he excels at using his size and strength in run blocking. He will have to continue to improve his footwork in pass blocking, but his overall athletic ability on the offensive front will help him turn into a solid player at the collegiate level.

With the addition of Okun, the lone Oregon commit for 2015, the Ducks have the 46th highest-ranked class in the country and the No. 7 overall class in the Pac-12.
