One of the Ducks top quarterback targets has made some news Sunday evening. St. Frances Academy (Md.) quarterback Michael Van Buren announced he will be at the Oregon Spring game this weekend. A visit that was not previously expected.
This is some massive news for the Ducks as they work on finding a quarterback commit in the 2024 class.
Van Buren is the nation’s No. 181 ranked player in the On3 Industry Rankings. He is the nation’s No. 12 ranked quarterback nationally.
On Friday Van Buren announced a top three consisting of Oregon, Maryland and Penn State. Heading into the weekend, Penn State held a massive lead in the On3 RPM but that shifted with this development and new predictions made following the news.
Oregon now has 37.5% chance to land Van Buren compared to Penn State’s 59%.
Baltimore St. Francis Academy coach Messay Hailemariam likes to tell a story that demonstrates the type of character his star quarterback Michael Van Buren has. After throwing four touchdowns in his first varsity start – against California powerhouse Concord De La Salle – Hailemariam said Van Buren helped him wash the team’s uniforms. “He was helping with the laundry,” Hailemariam told 247Sports. “That’s the type of guy he is. The type of leader. He is the whole package. From day one, he has been very coachable. He’s extremely humble but he’s confident. He had a different swag to him.” Away from football, Van Buren likes listening to Lil Durk and his favorite food are fruit snacks. He plans on majoring in physical education. His parents are Monique Walker and Michael Van Buren Sr.
