2022 wide receiver rookie Cole Prusia commits to Oregon Ducks football


The Ducks have secured the commitment of another player on the recruiting track for the upcoming season.

2022 Tualatin (Ore.) High school wide receiver Cole Prussia committed to Oregon as a favorite walk-on.

The 6-foot-3, 204-pound wide receiver is considered a 3-star prospect (.8531 according to the 247 Sports Composite) and had previously been contracted to Princeton since August 2021. He held three reported offers to Princeton, Oregon. State and Idaho.

Prusia was named the 2020-21 Oregon Gatorade Player of the Year after playing wide receiver and defensive back for the Timberwolves. He helped lead the team to a 4-2 record in the abbreviated spring high school football season.

During that time, he caught 31 passes for 554 yards and nine touchdowns, good for 17.9 yards per catch.

Prusia’s commitment is one that makes a lot of sense for Oregon. During the 2021 season and impending coaching transition, the Ducks’ 2022 recruiting class has been hammered by attrition, particularly at wide receiver, losing verbal commitments from Tetairoa McMillan (Arizona), Stephon Johnson Jr. (Oklahoma State), Isaiah Sategna (Arkansas) and Nicholas Anderson (Oklahoma).

The Ducks added purse depth to the post in the form of a 2022 prep signee Justius Lowe from Lake Oswego, and Chase Cota, a Medford native who transfers from UCLA. Prusia’s commitment boosts Oregon State’s presence on the roster, as it joins the aforementioned Lowe as well as security signee Trejon Williams and signed linebacker Emar’rion Winston.

With Prusia’s commitment, Oregon has now added four of the state’s top six players for 2022 (based on 247).
