The Oregon Ducks have added another very skilled edge rusher, maintaining their recruiting momentum.
Edge rusher 2023, The Oregon Ducks now have the commitment of Blake Purchase. His commitment was publicised on the 247Sports YouTube channel.
Purchase is a 6-foot-3, 240-pound edge rusher from Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colorado. His top five teams also included the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Washington Huskies, Iowa State Cyclones, and Colorado Buffaloes, but he ultimately settled on the Ducks.
On the 247Sports Composite, the most recent Oregon Ducks commit is regarded as a four-star (0.9070) prospect. He is rated far higher by 247Sports than the composite, where he is listed as the No. 122 player in the nation, the No. 14 edge rusher, and the best player in Colorado.
Purchase is the 18th pledge overall in Dan Lanning’s class of 2023 recruits. He is one of three edge rushers in an Oregon class that also includes Jaeden Moore from Central California and Teitum Tuioti, a graduate of Eugene’s Sheldon High School and the son of Ducks defensive line coach Tony Tuioti.
The Ducks are continuing to strengthen at a position of need with this transaction. The pass rush was weak even when they had Kayvon Thibodeaux, and it remains to be seen whether this year’s team can consistently collapse the pocket against Pac-12 opponents.
Although Colorado hasn’t historically produced top-tier talent, the Ducks have visited the state recently to sign promising prospects like tight end Terrance Ferguson and linebacker Adrian Jackson, who has since left the programme.
