Kayvon Thibodeaux, who is rated by ESPN as the No. 1 overall high school prospect in the nation, announced his decision to commit to Oregon live on ESPN during halftime of the New Mexico Bowl between North Texas and Utah State.
Thibodeaux is a native of Thousand Oaks, Ca., and plays for Southern California powerhouse high school program Oaks Christian.
The 6-foot-4, 239-pound Thibodeaux made his choice among finalists Alabama, Florida, FSU and Oregon. Thibodeaux plans to sign during the early signing period and follow that up by enrolling early in time for spring practice. 247Sports Composite Rankings lists Thibodeaux as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect.
Before officially starting his college career, Thibodeaux will compete in the 2019 Under Armour All-American Game, which is also broadcast by ESPN networks. The game is scheduled to be played Thursday, January 3 at 6:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
