Prior to the departure of Willie Taggart to Florida State, the Oregon Ducks football program had arguably the best collection of pass-catchers in the country. Oregon had secure the verbal commitments of five four-star wide receivers, as well as a pair of quality tight end - Spencer Webb and Teagan Quitoriano. But in the fallout of the coaching change, all five receivers decommitted and both tight ends failed to sign during the early signing period.
The Oregon Ducks entered the 2018 recruiting cycle with several key needs - beefed up offensive and defensive lines, a quarterback, several wide receivers, a tight end or two and a pair of safeties. But one of the less-publicized needs was for a new longsnapper with the graduation of Tanner Carew. Just weeks after adding U.S. Army All-American longsnapper Karsten Battles, Oregon added a second specialist, as Peyton Yanagi announced his commitment to the Ducks over the weekend.
Of all of the Oregon Ducks football program's needs in the class of 2018, the wide receiver position has been the biggest rollercoaster ride. Prior to the beginning of Willie Taggart-to-Florida State rumors, Oregon had five four-star wide receiver in the fold and were among the nation's top programs in terms of their incoming haul of pass-catchers.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
