Penei Sewell, a four-star offensive lineman prospect in the 2018 recruiting class, has committed to the Oregon Ducks.
Sewell’s National Signing Day decision to pick the Ducks comes to the sadness of Alabama, Utah and USC. Those were all programs that the big man had on his final four list.
Here’s that final four list from back in December:
Sewell recently discussed how much he enjoyed what Oregon had to offer to 247Sports.
“Definitely the family atmosphere,” Sewell 247Sports. “When I was on campus both times, I felt comfortable with the coaches and players. I love the staff, it’s like a family out there and they’re building the program.”
According to the talent, Willie Taggart leaving for Florida State wasn’t as bad for his recruitment as it could have been.
“Coach Cristobal taking over for coach Taggart impacted it a lot, just knowing there’s stability there,” Sewell said. “Meeting with coach Cristobal that night meant a lot because it’s tough to do something like that after losing a bowl game.
“I feel comfortable with coach Cristobal. I know the program is headed in the right direction.”
Per 247Sports, Sewell is the No. 2-rated offensive guard and No. 57 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
