Dan Lanning and his staff sure do know how to recruit.
That’s not to say anything about Mario Cristobal and his staff at Oregon, who were certainly no slouches when it came to convincing some of the top talent to come to Eugene, but rather an acknowledgment that the early returns from the new regime are as positive as we could have imagined.

Whether it’s the tricked-out photoshoots or a simple ride around campus, recruits appear to be in good spirits as they dance around and take a look at what could be their new home in a matter of years.

Guys like QB Dante Moore, RB Richard Young, DE Matayo Uiagalelei, or DE Jayden Wayne all appeared to be enjoying themselves with the coaching staff. Here are some of the best tweets and reactions we saw from the weekend:
