Oregon is one of the hottest teams in the country on the recruit lane after landing commitments George Silva, Iapani Laloulu and AJ Pugliano earlier this week.
One prospect they rank very high on is Millikan Quarterback of Long Beach, California. Myles Jacksonwho was back in Eugene for the UCLA game.
The 6-2, 190-pound quarterback has been busy on the recruiting lane with recent trips to UCLA, Washington and Arizona.
Jackson made the short trip north to get a better feel for a new baton that has taken the country by storm both on and off the field.
“It’s definitely one of my top schools just because I was out there in the winter earlier this year and I’m going back out there. Really feel at home there,” Jackson said ducks digest why he made the trip. “My relationship with Coach Dillingham is pretty good. I really wanted to see a GameDay vibe because it’s their first year on staff. So I think it’s important to see what the energy was like.”

Autzen Stadium roared from start to finish as the fourth largest audience in program history witnessed the 45-30 win over UCLA.
“The atmosphere was great. It was raining, but it was definitely live,” he said. “The fans were active throughout the game and just cheered for the boys. super loud Super good environment. The GameDay vibe was great. That was a really cool experience. I know my family loved it too.”
The Oregon Offense tallyed more than 40 points for the sixth straight game and the fireworks certainly caught Jackson’s attention.
“It was great. It was really cool to see what Coach Dillingham did with offense,” said the junior passer. “The way they use their backs, their running game, pretty balanced. The way they use the big tight ends is pretty good to see.”
When Kenny Dillingham was hired, he said he would create a system players want to play in, and that appears to be the case with this highly acclaimed quarterback.
“Overall, they move. It’s really good to see a quarterback-friendly offense. I feel like this system suits me really well.”

The trip to Eugene gave him the opportunity to spend time with some of the current players in Oregon’s Quarterback Room, who had nothing but good things to say about their time with the new team.
“I need to talk to some of their quarterbacks. Pretty familiar with Markus Sanders. I talked to you a bit Jay Butterfield‘ Jackson said. “Just being able to talk to them and see how they like it because it’s also their first year with this staff. They love it. I’ve had the opportunity to speak a lot with Coach Dillingham and Coach Lanning and continue to develop my relationship with them.”
As he continues to balance his high school season with the recruiting process, he has a few trips he’d like to take to help advance.
“I went to USC for a game, I definitely want to get out there,” he said. “I want to go to Stanford and Arizona. I could go to a game in Kentucky, I just have to find out. I was supposed to be going to Jackson State this week but had to cancel due to transportation issues.”
Jackson has 20 reported scholarship offers but still hears the most from an extensive list of schools.
“Definitely UW (Washington), Oregon. Spoke to Texas. USC, Arizona, Stanford, Rutgers and Mississippi State.”
