Anthony Beavers Ditches Oregon For USC?
Is Anthony Beavers ditching Oregon for USC?
That is the question many are asking after the four-star recruit de-committed this week.
Oregon is fresh off a season that saw them go 12-2, win the Pac-12 Title and then claim victory over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
If not for an early season loss, there is a very good chance the Ducks would have been in contention for a College Football Playoff spot come season’s end.
Unfortunately, it is not all smooth sailing for Mraio Cristobal’s squad.
Things were heading in the right direction when the Ducks were able to amass the best class of any Pac-12 squad in the 2020 recruiting.
Things changed quickly from there, though.
As of Today, My Recruitment Is Wide Open – Anthony Beavers JR💯

On Wednesday, Beavers walked back a commitment that he made roughly 10 months ago.
In a post on Twitter, the youngster said “as of today, my recruitment is wide open.”
Beavers is generally ranked as the 139th best prospect in the 2021 class, the 11th best athlete in the country and the 15th best overall prospect from his home state.
USC is figured to be a favorite to sign Beavers, but there is also a chance that he will end up with one of the other schools that offered him a scholarship.
Florida State, Nebraska and Tennessee are among that list of institutions, as are the defending champion LSU Tigers.
As it stands, Oregon’s 2021 class is ranked the eighth best in the country and the best in the Pac-12. If Beavers does not change his mind about de-committing, obviously that ranking will take a bit of a hit.
Fortunately for the Ducks, of the five remaining commitments for 2021, all but one are four-star prospects.
