Rushing to Eugene? Oregon recruits build buzz; Ryan Wingo chooses Texas, but is it over? (Recruiting roundup)

Ryan Wingo committed to Texas, but his dad said he hasn't signed, implying there's more to come

It has been a busy stretch on the recruiting calendar.

In fact, according to Rivals' rankings, there isn't a five-star recruit left on the board.

While the other sites disagree with that evaluation, it certainly goes a long way in highlighting just how hectic things have been on the recruiting trail.

Perhaps the most noteworthy uncommitted prospect is Salpointe Catholic (Arizona) edge-rusher Elijah Rushing.

Following his decommitment from Arizona, many speculated a quick flip to Oregon was in the cards.

The Ducks, I'm told, remain the overwhelming favorite to secure Rushing's commitment, but he is in no hurry.

Oregon fans should expect it to go their way in the end.

Here's a look at the top stories of the past few days:

- 5-star wide receiver Ryan Wingo commits to Texas

“It was super tough," Wingo said of the decision. "It came down to Mizzou and Texas and it was super, super hard having to pass up on Mizzou knowing it’s close to home, feel like home, everything like that. Like I said, I’m kind of creating my own path for myself going up there and being able to go to work.”
