Oregons adds to its 2019 class with 3-star DE/OLB

Treven Ma'ae is Oregon's 21st commit of the 2019 class; Ducks now ranked No. 4 in the nation

With the 2018 season one day away, Oregon has already picked up an early win.

On Thursday, 3-star OLB/DE Treven Maae verbally announced his commitment to the Ducks, making him Oregons 21st commitment of the 2019 class. The Ducks now have the nations No. 4 ranked recruiting class; sitting behind Alabama, Georgia and Texas A&M this could be the type of class the completely changes Oregons future.

Maae (6-foot-4, 240), who hails from talent-rich Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, is that stat's No. 2 recruit.

While currently listed as a defensive end in the composite rankings, Maae will probably play outside linebacker in Oregons scheme. Size-wise, he reminds me of current Ducks OLB Justin Hollins but depending on how much Maae fills out will decide where he eventually finds a home in Oregons front seven.

Maae held offers from most of the top schools in the nation, including Oklahoma, USC, California, Louisville, Nebraska and Arizona State. His commitment gives Oregon its fourth linebacker commit of the class, a position the Ducks were in desperate need of with Hollins graduating and junior MLB Troy Dye expected to test the NFL draft-waters this spring.
