The Oregon Ducks new coaching staff is hard at work putting the finishing touches on the 2022 recruiting class.

But that effort also extends into the 2023 and 2024 recruiting cycles, as Oregon is set to host a handful of key young visitors this month.

This weekend, 247Sports four-star quarterback Demond Williams Jr., the nation’s No. 9 quarterback and No. 96 overall prospect in the class of 2024, will be on campus for an unofficial visit:

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound signal-caller, out of Basha High School (Chandler, Arizona), is a two-year starter at who has accumulated 4,446 yards passing with 36 touchdowns and just eight interceptions, while also registering 883 yards and 17 scores on the ground.

Williams already holds double-digit scholarship offers, highlighted by Arizona and Colorado, but has also generated interest from any of the top programs in the country.

It’s still far too early to project the dynamic young quarterback’s landing spot, but Oregon is obviously laying some early groundwork with this weekend’s visit.
