Nyckoles Harbor, a 5-star athlete from the Washington D.C. era who has made waves in both the football and track world, announced his commitment on Wednesday morning.
Unfortunately for Oregon Duck fans, it wasn't a commitment to come play ball in Eugene.
Harbor officially committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks on Wednesday, agreeing to travel down south to play for Shane Beamer and run track as well. With aspirations of running in the 2024 Paris Olympics, many thought that Oregon's legendary track program, with the historic Hayward Field on campus, would be a major chip in getting Harbor to commit to the Ducks, but in the end, it didn't appear to be enough.
Despite missing out on Harbor, the Ducks still signed a pair of 5-star recruits in 2023 and have the No. 10 ranked class in the nation for this cycle.
