Townsend, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound defensive end from Ralston Valley Senior (Arvada, Colo.), chose the Ducks over seven other schools, including fellow Pac-12 member Washington State. He’s rated as the No. 4 prospect in Colorado, the No. 42 defensive end in the nation and No. 540 recruit overall, per 247Sports.
“I love the juice that’s here,” Townsend told 247’s Steve Wiltfong. “The relationship between the coaches and players and how the practices are ran and the motive behind the coaches. I’m getting a real good trustworthy vibe. It’s more than football here. I think they’re going to help me both on and off the field, fulfill my dreams to be an NFL player and get business done in the classroom. There are a lot of incredible backgrounds on this coaching staff. A lot of good people.”
Townsend is the first defensive end to join Oregon’s 2019 class.
