Oregon Offers Jayden Fortier, State’s Top Recruit Committed to Arizona State

The Ducks are trying to flip the state’s top-ranked recruit in the 2024 class.

The Oregon Ducks sent out a big offer Saturday morning.

The Oregon Ducks, who defeated the Oregon State Beavers 31–7, have extended an offer to 2024 Tualatin, Ore., tight end Jayden Fortier, who announced the offer over social media

He posted on Twitter, saying, “I am blessed to say I have received an offer from The University of Oregon after a great conversation with Drew Mehringer.”

One of Oregon’s most recent offers is particularly intriguing because of a few factors.

For starters, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound tight end is ranked the No. 1 player in the state of Oregon for the 2024 recruiting class. He’s also been committed to former Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham and the Arizona State Sun Devils since June 30.

Over offers from other schools, including Utah, Arizona, and Washington State, Fortier chose to commit to Arizona State.

The No. 1 recruit in Oregon saw his senior season come to a close on Friday night, as the Tualatin Timberwolves fell to the Central Catholic Rams 49-21 in the Oregon 6A State Championship.

Torres’ Take

This offer is one that I’ve been expecting for a while. The Ducks already have commitments from other top in-state players like Devin Brooks and A.J. Pugliano, so why wouldn’t the No. 1 recruit have an offer?

Oregon has been ramping up their efforts to add more offensive talent in the 2024 class of late, hosting top targets like Boise State wide receiver Gatlin Bair as well as Orem (Ut.) tight end/wide receiver Roger Saleapaga, who’s set to announce his commitment on December 1.

Despite Fortier’s commitment to Arizona State, I really like Oregon’s chances here. While I have not had the opportunity to interview him, it is easy to understand why playing for the Ducks would be appealing given the differences between the two schools.

Not only are they red-hot both on the field and the recruiting trail, but you figure the offer to play for a school he likely grew up supporting or at least watching means a lot. The offer made on Saturday is just another example of how Dan Lanning has made it a point to recruit the best players in Oregon.

Fortier has been to Oregon for a visit before, but I’d imagine the next step is getting him back on campus.
