5-star QB Michael Van Buren commits to Oregon

Quarterback Michael Van Buren, a five-star recruit in the Class of 2024, committed to Oregon on Saturday.

The St. Frances Academy (Maryland) standout chose the Ducks over Penn State and Maryland.

ESPN has Van Buren ranked 18th overall and No. 2 among pocket passers behind Georgia commit Dylan Raiola.

“What stood out to me most would probably be just how bought-in everybody is and how together everyone is,” he told ESPN. “The team is very close. Everybody treats everybody like family and the people in the building, they all have great energy and everybody there really wants people to succeed and they’re going to do everything they can to make sure that happens.”

As a junior, Van Buren completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,707 yards and 18 touchdowns.
