The Oregon Ducks, looking for a potential class of 2015 signee to succeed Marcus Mariota, on Saturday offered Travis Waller.

Waller, a four-star Anaheim, Calif., quarterback visited Alabama last week.

On June 9 he announced via Twitter that Alabama, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Ohio State were his "top four" schools.

The offer comes days after Oregon missed out on four-star Blake Barnett, who verbally committed to Alabama on Wednesday.

Barnett had de-committed from Notre Dame -- where he'd been a commit since November -- in late May and visited Oregon's campus within days. But last week he also took an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa, Ala. His choice of the Crimson Tide was considered an upset: 247Sports' "Crystal Ball" had most recently given Oregon a 63 percent chance at landing Barnett's commitment.

Before missing out on Barnett, ASU commit Brady White and Texas A&M commit Kyler Murray had previously made Oregon their finalists.

After Barnett's decision, Oregon moved quickly to offer a scholarship to Sam Darnold of San Clemente, Calif. He is a 6-foot-4, 210-pound dual-threat prospect who is rated a three-star recruit by the major services.
