4-star OT Ziyare Addison makes an official visit to Oregon

The fourth leg of four-star offensive tackle from Tampa Sumner Ziyare AddisonThe official visit schedule has him heading to Eugene for another trip Oregon.

The Ducks made it to its top nine schools last month and now get another chance to make a personal impact. This is Addison’s third visit Dan Lanning and co. this year – despite the campus being almost 4,000 kilometers away from home.

UCLA, Georgia and Florida have already hosted Addison for official visits. He’s about to take transit to Penn State next weekend and will then cap off a busy June with another trip to Florida State. The competition continues to increase for the 6-foot-4, 280-pounder.

“I look forward to them (Oregon) going into more detail with the program,” Addison told Scoop Duck prior to the visit. “I’m looking forward to getting into the medical program, so I’m looking forward to seeing that part of the program.”

Every PT so far has had an impact on Addison. Lanning, A’lique Terry and co. are likely to leave the same kind of mark on the blue-chip tackle. In the spring, Addison told Phillip Dukes of On3 that he was eyeing a commitment for mid-August.

“You get a kid who can play one through five, who studies the game and loves it. The game doesn’t take that for granted.” Addison said when asked what a school gets for committing. “It took blood, sweat and tears to get where I am now. Fun fact about me: I came in as a defensive end and a tight end – I weighed only 190 pounds, not so sure if I was going to join the military or play football.

Now I believe I am one of the best offensive linemen, if not the best offensive lineman in the country. Breaking my butt, shifting gears and trying to learn the position and now the advantage is there because this is my third year playing offensive line so the advantage is there.

Addison is the No. 179 overall prospect and No. 15 OT in the 2025 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average using all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 26 player in Florida.

Ducks on the hunt for a new top-five class

After finishing the 2024 cycle with the nation’s No. 3 class, Lanning and his staff are on pace to finish near the top of the rankings. On3 industry team recruitment rankings come again this winter.

Currently, seven prospects have committed to the Ducks. Headlining the class is the Tampa Bay Tech five-star wide receiver Dallas Wilson, the No. 26 overall prospect and No. 5 wide in the cycle. He is one of three blue-chip receivers in this class, joining Lee’s Summit (Mo.) North four-star Isaiah Mozee and Scottsdale (Ariz.) Notre Dame Prep four-star Cooper Perry.

San Diego Lincoln promises a four-star quarterback Akili Smith Jr. has continued to rise ahead of his senior season and is now a top-10 signal caller and the No. 101 overall recruit. Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei four-star linebacker Nasir Wyatt is right behind Smith at No. 102 overall. Both are top-10 players in California.

Belleville (Ill.) Althoff Catholic four-star athlete Dierre Hill is a top-200 recruit and committed to the Ducks on May 10 as a top running back target. He and Concord (Calif.) De La Salle, four-star defensive lineman Matthew Johnson round out the class – which is currently ranked No. 8 in the country.
