By ESPN.com staff
Today is the launch of DuckNation, RecruitingNation's site dedicated to the University of Oregon. Check it out here.
Brandon Oliver writes: Oregon's running game has wreaked havoc in the Pac-12 since the arrival of Chip Kelly with speedy tailbacks. Guess what? The new recruits Oregon is bringing in are even faster.
Oliver writes : The commitment of DeSoto, Texas running back Dontre Wilson is the latest foray for Oregon into the Lone Star state, the home of former Ducks great LaMichael James.
Oliver writes : Aloha, Ore., running back Thomas Tyner can run the 100-meter dash in 10.35 seconds, but the uber-fast Oregon commit looks forward more to being a role model in his home state.
Oliver writes : Oregon has had a lot of success recruiting Encino (Calif.) Crespi Carmelite High School, which is why safety Brandon Arnold is willing to work his way into a Ducks offer.
