The Oregon Ducks have become a factory as far as producing NFL tight ends goes.
David Paulson of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dante Rosario of the Chicago Bears, Brandon Williams of the Carolina Panthers and free agent Ed Dickson have all varying degrees of success in the league (Plus, Colt Lyerla, despite his runs ins with the law, will be drafted this year).
The Ducks believe they may have added their next great tight end when they got a commitment from 3-star tight end Jacob Breeland on Tuesday night.
“The (Oregon) program is ridiculous,” Breeland told Justin Hopkins of 24/7 Sports. “The staff is just awesome and the help you get with academics is as good as it gets. The technology and the facilities are insane. We visited on Thursday and Friday but stayed through the weekend. We came home and prayed about it as a family and just knew Oregon was the place.”
The 6’5, 205-pounder attends Trabuco Hills High School in Mission Viejo, California.
Breeland is ranked as the 17th best tight end prospect, the 58th best overall prospect in the state of California and the 465th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 composite rankings.
