Oregon football recruiting: 3-star OG Shane Lemieux commits to Ducks


Over the weekend, the Oregon Ducks added their second offensive guard and fourth overall verbal commitment for the class of 2015 when they got a commitment from 3-star guard Shane Lemieux.

He joined 4-star running back Taj Griffin, 4-star guard Zach Okun and 3-star tight end Jacob Breeland.

“I’ve always thought Oregon was my favorite,” said Lemieux via Matt Prehm of 24/7 Sports. “ don’t want to say South Carolina pressured me or anything, but it all got blown out of hand about a possible commitment. I felt bad after all that happened, the first person I called wasn’t my Mom, but it was to Oregon to let them know what’s up and if I committed.

The 6’6, 285-pounder is from Yakima, Washington and attends West Valley High School. He is ranked as the 53rd-best offensive guard prospect in the country, the 10th-best overall prospect in the state of Washington and the 770th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Lemieux also had offers from the South Carolina Gamecocks, Arizona State Sun Devils and Arkansas Razorbacks, among others.
