National signing day 2014: Khalil Oliver signs with Oregon Ducks

Safety Khalil Oliver, rated a three-star prospect by 247 Sports, has signed his National Letter of Intent to play at Oregon.

Oliver took to Twitter to showcase some of the snazzy gear he’ll be wearing for the Ducks:

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect out of Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian, Idaho, originally committed to the Boise State Broncos last spring but decided to renege on the commitment after head coach Chris Petersen left for the Washington Huskies.

Along with playing football, Oliver may run track for the Ducks:

According to Rachel Roberts of The Idaho Statesman and other media reports, Oliver announced he also plans to run hurdles for Oregon’s track and field program. He won the 2013 Idaho Class 5A state championship in the 110-meter hurdles in 14.21 seconds. He also has personal bests of 21 feet, 10 inches in the long jump and 46-2.5 in the triple jump (The Oregonian).

Keep checking back with FanSided for updates throughout signing day (evidently not a national celebration of semiotics, but whatever).
