The defending national champs will be forced to reload following departures of many of its top players.

Southern Cal commit Bryce Young will take over for JT Daniels under center. Young is the nation’s top-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2020. Oregon commit Sean Dollars will help out of the backfield, and five-star Bru McCoy,  one of the nation’s most dynamic players, will be his top target. Oregon commit Jeremiah Criddell, a safety, will also play some receiver along with Colorado commit Braedin Huffman-Dixon.

Another pair of Oregon commits head the defense in linebacker Mase Funa and defensive tackle Keyon Ware-Hudson.
