–4-star 2024 OT Fox Crader. Evergreen High School, Vancouver, Washington.

Fox Crader, the No. 343 overall, No. 23 offensive tackle, and No. 7 player in Washington in the 2024 class, committed to the Oregon Ducks on Monday. Crader chose the Ducks over multiple programs, including the Miami Hurricanes, Oregon State Beavers, Washington Huskies, and USC Trojans. He said, 

"I made this decision with my family and coaches this last week, but I've known for a while now that I'm going to Oregon. I love everything about Oregon. I committed to Oregon because I want to be a part of that culture.

Crader becomes the second recruit in the 2024 class for Dan Lanning and the Ducks.

–3-star WR Collin Dixon, Tallmadge High School, Tallmadge, Ohio.

Collin Dixon is the No. 916 overall, No. 122 wide receiver, and No. 27 player in Ohio. On November 17, he backed off his pledge from the Wisconsin Badgers due to the coaching situation after having been committed to them since June. The teams recruiting him the most are the Illinois Fighting Illini, Minnesota Golden Gophers, and Northwestern Wildcats. He visited Illinois the weekend before his decommitment and could look to take additional visits soon too. However, the Illini look to be the favorites here, as he has said he has a good relationship with the coaching staff.  So keep an eye on them. Dixon could also receive new interests too. He has risen steadily up the rankings since his initial commitment back in the summer.

–4-star 2024 CB Wallace Foster, Warren Easton High School, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Wallace Foster, who is the No. 323 overall, No. 30 cornerback, and No. 7 player in Louisiana in the 2024 class, committed to the LSU Tigers over the weekend. Foster had multiple offers from programs like the Arkansas Razorbacks, Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes, Texas Longhorns, and Texas A&M Aggies. His pledge now gives the Tigers eight commitments in their 2024 class, which ranks first in the nation. Combine that with their current class, which ranks fourth, and their upcoming appearance in the SEC Championship, and things couldn't be going any better for Brian Kelly in Death Valley. The Tigers are on a roll.

–3- star WR Jermod McCoy, Whitehouse High School, Whitehouse, Texas.

Jermod McCoy committed to the Oregon State Beavers on Monday. He is the No. 1631 overall, No. 145 athlete, and No. 250 player in Texas and chose the Beavers over the Army Black Knights, Air Force Falcons, and Tulane Green Wave, among others. McCoy played on both sides of the ball this season as a cornerback and wide receiver. He adds to a Beavers class ranked just outside the top 50 at No. 53 and eighth in the Pac-12.

–3-star ATH Miles Thompson, George Washington High School, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Miles Thompson, the No. 1850 overall, No. 174 athlete, and No. 19 player in Iowa, committed to the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Monday, choosing them over the Northern Illinois Huskies. Thompson had committed to the Huskies in June before withdrawing his pledge in September. He was in Lubbock in September when the Red Raiders hosted the Houston Cougars, and Tech had been the favorite to land him since. His commitment adds to a Red Raider class ranked No. 21 and fifth in the Big 12. With their recruiting class and Tech now bowl-eligible, head coach Joey McGuire's first season in Lubbock is already a very successful one.
