Dontre Wilson committed to the Oregon Ducks over schools like Texas and Ohio State.

The Oregon Ducks just keep on stockpiling running backs. No matter who ends up leaving or graduating, Oregon seems to find another guy.

Here comes Dontre Wilson, running back out of DeSoto, Texas. Wilson committed to Oregon over schools like Texas and Ohio State, and figures to be one of the next potential stars for the Ducks as they transition fully into the post-LaMichael James era.

Wescott Eberts of SB Nation has more, and is very high on Wilson's overall talent level.

At 5-11 and a listed 180 pounds (he was listed at 160 pounds earlier in his prep career and has not noticeably added a substantial amount of bulk), Wilson doesn't have the prototypical build of a running back, but he's not a future slot receiver playing running back -- he has the vision and the feet to create extra yardage past what his offensive line and the defense allow.

USC seemed to have the best running back class in 2012 for the Pac-12. They landed Justin Davis from Stockton. But Oregon might have two of the best pure runners to plug in their system with local product Thomas Tyner long committed and now the explosive Wilson making his mark.
