Chris Henry Jr. has a new home.

The No. 1 wide receiver in the 2026 recruiting class recently transferred from Cincinatti (Ohio) Withrow to Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei and he's set for a busy spring on the recruiting trail.

The 6-foot-5, 185-pound wide receiver, who's been verbally committed to Ohio State since July, will take an unofficial visit Oregon on April 20, according to a report from Brandon Huffman of 247Sports.

The top wide receiver in the country will also take trips to USC, Texas A&M, Texas and Ohio State, Huffman reports. 

Oregon has just one commitment in the 2026 class in Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain defensive lineman Tony Cumberland, who pledged to the Ducks in September.

The 2025 class remains the main recruiting focus for coaching staffs in college football, as Dan Lanning and the Ducks project to have a majority of their class committed by the beginning of the season.

Oregon's wide receiver big board in the 2026 class will once again span across the country, but recent cycles tell us that the West Coast will be a main focus for Junior Adams, who signed one wide receiver out of Mater Dei in the 2024 class: Jack Ressler.
