Ducks receive commitment from 4-star OL Jonah Tauanu'u

Oregon adds to its already top-5 recruiting class with one of the top OL in the nation

The rich keep getting richer.

After bringing in a massive group of offensive linemen for the 2018 recruiting cycle, Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal wasn't satisfied. Not only did he add the nation's No. 1 junior college prospect Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu to Oregon's incoming top-5 recruiting class, Cristobal went out and got another game-changing player for the offensive line.

Jonah Tauanu'u, widely regarded as one of the top offensive line prospects in the nation, committed to the Ducks on Saturday night over fellow finalists Tennessee, Florida, Louisville, Oklahoma, LSU, Michigan, Auburn, Ole Miss and Pac-12 rival USC

Tauanu'u's commitment comes on the heels of a very successful "Saturday Night Live" event hosted by the Ducks on September 4. Tauanu'u — from Narbonne High School in Harbor City, Calif — was amongst the recruits who attended and based on his presence at the camp, his recruitment picked up strongly on Oregon's end.

Tauanu'u, — who is the Ducks' 20th pledge of the incoming class — is now Oregon's third-highest rated commit, behind linebacker Mase Funa and defensive back MyKael Wright.

Give me an idea of how important Joe Salave'a is to this staff in terms of recruiting.
