Skyline (Idaho) star Kenyon Sadiq, the nation's No. 5 athlete, committed to the Oregon Ducks over Michigan, Washington and others in August.

Since that time, the versatile 6-foot-3, 220-pound wide receiver/tight end has never wavered.

And despite Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham recently leaving to become the head coach at Arizona State, nothing has changed for him.

Sadiq is ready to become a Duck during the December early signing period.

"I’m locked in with Oregon," he said. "I trust the coaches and I know they will do what’s best for the program."

While there was no outward reason to suspect Sadiq's commitment was wavering, it is still good news of the program.

Any time a team loses its head coach, offensive coordinator of defensive coordinator it can lead to some instability in the recruiting class, especially when the early signing period is mere weeks away.

An added bonus? Sadiq is a highly-coveted, talented athlete at a position of need for the Ducks. 

Here's what 247Sports had to say about him as a prospect:

"A three-sport athlete with ample snaps on both sides of the ball and the potential to play either way at the high-major level explain the meteoric ascension of Sadiq. Around 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Sadiq caught 78 passes for 1,162 yards and 19 touchdowns, ran for two scores, and added two interceptions on defense in 2021. He also plays basketball and recently posted an impressive 11.04 100-meter time. Sadiq's size and on-field profile project particularly well to the defensive back seven, but his offensive skill may dictate remaining on that side of the ball."
