Three-star wide receiver Devin Culp decommitted from Oregon on Sunday, leaving the Ducks without a commit in the 2018 recruiting class.
While Willie Taggart is building his 2017 recruiting class in Eugene, he lost a piece of the 2018 class, which is now without a single commit.
On Sunday, 3-star wide receiver Devin Culp decommitted from Oregon after initially committing to Mark Helfrich’s staff on June 18.
Culp, who’s from Spokane, Washington, released a statement regarding his decision to back off his Oregon pledge.
“Well, after a lot of deep thinking and discussion with family members and coaches, I’ve decided to re-open my recruitment back up. I’d like to thank the University of Oregon for blessing me with the opportunity they did. But other schools are beginning to show interest in me, and I’d like to see what’s out there. Thanks to the Oregon fans who showed love to me. Eugene is a great place with great people in it. Thank you, and God Bless.”
Culp is the second 2018 prospect to decommit from the Ducks since Helfrich was let go. Four-star quarterback Colson Yankoff backed off his pledge last month.
At 6-foot-5, 185 lbs Culp is a deep threat, capable of stretching the field vertically. However, he has gotten plenty of opportunities to stretch it horizontally, too. He’s a sideline-to-sideline threat and often has his number called for jet sweeps.
With above-average speed and hands, refining his footwork and route running will help him create more separation off the line of scrimmage.
Both Washington and Washington State have shown interest in keeping Culp close to home.
