247Sports Rankings Adjustment

November 18, 2020

Is the Duck bump finally becoming a thing? Well let’s pump the brakes a little. However earlier today 247Sports updated its rankings and a number of Oregon commits and targets did see some movement. 

A couple of Oregon commits also dropped a few places here and there, but nodoby saw a massive drop in ranking.

Once updated, the 247Sports Composite ranking will also adjust. The composite has become a pretty widely used ‘average’ of major rankings. While today’s update was just the 247Sports rankings, the Composite will also be adjusted. 

Oregon has 10 commits in the updated top 247. 

Here’s a look at a few of the biggest movers from todays update.

28. Kingsley Suamataia‍ +45 spots

There has been a lot of talk about Suamataia moving up. He’s one of a handful of players actually playing his senior season. So there’s additional film for evaluators to take a closer look at his development from his junior year to senior year. 

The Oregon staff has been plenty high on Suamataia for a long time. So I would imagine the jump is no real surprise to them. However its good to see the roegon commit rewarded for his hard work this offseason.

49. Troy Franklin‍ -6 spots

This probably has more to do with Franklin not playing and others playing. I wouldn’t look into a 6 spot drop too much given the year we are going through with regards to who is and who isn’t playing football.

62. Bram Walden‍ +21 spots

Again, Walden has been able to play some games this year. I don’t think there is an Oregon coach shocked to see his upward movement. Walden might not have elite size but he has all of the other tools that will make him a very good offensive lineman for the Ducks.

72. Donte Thornton Jr.‍ -7 spots

Again, a 7 spot drop. Which likely says more about guys moving ahead rather than Thornton actually dropping. 

83. Ty Thompson‍ -1 spot

One spot. That’s basically no movement in my mind.

103. Keith Brown‍ -3 spots

Three spots, basically no movement. 

165. Moliki Matavao‍ -2 spots

No real movement.

182. Jackson Light‍ -4 spots

I’m a tad bit surprised to see Light fall at all given he has been playing. But that said, he saw a pretty big jump in the late Summer so it’s not really a big deal.

203. Daymon David‍ -8 spots

A little movement for David but he also saw a big jump in the rankings. This is just a settling process.

235. Jabril McNeill‍ -14 spots

I don’t think 247 has ever really been that high on McNeill to begin with. Although I know the Oregon staff is plenty high on his upside. As long as he stays in the top 247 I think that's fair.
