Jayden Limar, 4-star running back, flips commitment from Notre Dame to Oregon

Limar led recent Washington big-school power Lake Stevens to its first state championship in program history in early December

Four-star Lake Stevens (Washington) running back Jayden Limar has flipped his commitment to Notre Dame and signed with the Oregon Ducks.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Limar is the No. 4 rated prospect in the state of Washington and No. 17 running back in the country, according to 247 Sports. 

He originally committed to Notre Dame in May, though he since maintained contact with Oregon coaches and reportedly took an official visit to Eugene last weekend.

In an interview with 247 Sports' Brandon Huffman, Limar cited his family in the greater Seattle area's ability to more easily watch him play as a big reason, as well as a strong relationship with UO running backs coach Carlow Locklyn.

Limar isn't the first blue chip prospect to spurn the Irish for the Ducks on Wednesday. Guyer (Texas) five-star safety Peyton Bowen, the nation's No. 14 overall prospect and No. 2 safety, flipped his commitment from Notre Dame to Oregon Wednesday morning

Buzz around Limar's talent has permeated in Washington since he stepped foot onto Lake Steven's campus as a freshman, as he's showed a grit and dazzle that promised greatness. 

He delivered on more than just a productive high school career. 

Limar was pivotal in bringing Lake Stevens its first WIAA state championship in early December, rushing for around 2,000 yards as a senior.
