WELCOME

The Order of the O is for UO former student-athletes who have earned a varsity letter in an intercollegiate sport while at Oregon. The purpose of the Order of the O is to perpetuate the legacy and tradition of University of Oregon Athletics. We promote excellence and leadership of all athletic programs by fostering enduring relationships among current athletes and former letter winners.

The Order of the O has become a productive, viable asset to the University of Oregon by adding value to the UO Athletic department and current student-athletes. Connecting Duck athlete alumni with current Ducks through mentorship and networking, the Order of the O is giving back by building a community to support among fellow Duck athletes.

Once a Duck, Always a Duck!

BREAKING NEWS: (DECEMBER 16, 2020)

NEW CLASS OF FOOTBALL RECRUITS IS OREGON’S HIGHEST-RATED EVER

If the foundation of an elite program is elite talent, then the Oregon football program under Mario Cristobal is on solid ground.

The Ducks are on track for the best recruiting class in school history after adding 20 players Wednesday, the first day of college football’s recently implemented early signing period. Two years after signing the first consensus top-10 class ever at Oregon, Cristobal and his staff are on track to raise the bar with a class that some consider among the top five in the country.

The end goal is to compete for national championships with the likes of Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State. That means competing for talent at the same level as those programs, which the Ducks are doing the last three years under Cristobal.

“We’re getting closer to where the roster needs to look like,” Cristobal said. “I think we’re approaching there.”

Headlined by top-100 recruits including quarterback Ty Thompson and offensive lineman Kingsley Suamataia, Oregon’s class was rated No. 5 nationally by Rivals as of Wednesday evening, and No. 6 according to ESPN and 247Sports. There’s the chance for movement in the coming weeks, as the Ducks look to augment this class with a few more signees during the traditional signing period in February.
