When consensus four-star prospect Jeremiah Criddell decommitted from Oregon in late November, it appeared all-but-certain he was ready to flip to the Oklahoma Sooners.
“The University of Oregon has been a big school in my recruitment since day 1 and through a coaching change I have kept them close,” he wrote. “I appreciate the staff and fans for always making me feel welcomed but at this time I will be de-committing and opening up my recruiting process to take some time and make sure I am making the best decision for myself and my family. “
The right words were written to keep the door open, but Criddell admitted Oklahoma had begun to play a major role in his recruitment.
This weekend, however, the 5-foot-11, 188-pound defensive back, out of Mater Dei High School (Santa Ana, California), took a visit to Oregon with a huge collection of pledges and top targets.
As if the late visit days before the early singing period weren’t enough to pique the interest of Duck fans, close friend and fellow Oregon commit Sean Dollars took to Twitter to declare the program had re-added a piece to its class.
We got another one coming back
