Just when everyone thought the storm had settled, Dan Lanning and the Oregon Ducks pulled off an absolute shocker on Saturday. Despite crystal ball predictions by 247Sports, envisioning Dorian Brew landing at Ohio State, Brew announced his commitment to Oregon. This development shocked many, especially Buckeyes fans, since they considered him a lock.

Lanning and defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi get the credit for this recruiting triumph. They have been relentless on the recruiting trail.

About Dorian Brew

Brew is a lengthy, physical cornerback. At 6-foot and 200 pounds, Brew has great size for his position. Brew is listed as a five-star by On3, with a No. 22 overall ranking in the country and No. 4 positional ranking. He is from Conroe, Texas, and is the No. 8 overall recruit in the state.

Brew meshes well with Lanning's defensive system. He plays against high-level competition at the 6A level in Texas, where he executes bump-and-run coverage at an elite level and shines with consistently dominant press coverage.

Video footage of Brew shows he is not afraid to assist in the run game and has serious hit power. Like most prospects, he needs to polish up on some mechanical aspects of the game. However, he has all the tools to become a top-notch college cornerback and future starter in the NFL. Perhaps the most eye-popping trait that Brew has is his speed. He occasionally bites on play-action, making iffy reads, but his speed enables him to play that way. Even if he is a step behind when a receiver hits the top of his route stem, Brew's speed allows him to push him right back onto the hip of the wideout before the ball arrives. Brew ran the 100-meter dash in a blazing 10.75 seconds and the 200-meter dash in 21.79 seconds.

Impact on Oregon

Brew's commitment is a pleasant surprise for Oregon, likely to yield benefits. The 2025 defensive recruiting class has been picking up steam lately with Josiah Sharma announcing his commitment on Saturday, along with the commitments of Matthew Johnson and Nasir Wyatt.

Additionally, Oregon Ducks Insider, Justin Hopkins, recently predicted five-star safety Trey McNutt will end up in Eugene. Hopkins said he believes the changes of that happening are 70 percent. If that prediction comes to fruition, the Ducks' defensive backfield will be shaping up as one of the best in college football.

The Ducks' 2025 recruiting class is now ranked No.5 in the nation, per On3. Ducks fans hope this wave is not over and more commits will join the flock. For now, Brew's commitment indicates that Lanning is building an incredible roster in Eugene.
