After an early summer of strong momentum on the recruiting trail, the Oregon Ducks took a hit this weekend, as their highest-rated pledge, Theo Howard, de-committed Sunday evening.

Oregon still has one of the Pac-12’s top classes, but Howard was the Ducks’ lone member of Scout’s top 50 prospects.

Oregon State had an equally disappointing end of the week, as four-star offensive lineman Sean Auwae, who was strongly considering the Beavers, committed to UCLA.

The recruiting trail is full of peaks and valleys, and last week both Oregon and Oregon State experienced a bit of a lull.
