Eight days after his official visit to the University of Oregon campus, Eastern Washington’s quarterback Vernon Adams has chosen to fly with the Ducks. Adams, who will be transferring in as a fifth year graduate student, announced his decision this morning via his Twitter:

Getting Adams almost certainly fills the quarterback hole that Marcus Mariota left after declaring for the NFL Draft. Adams brings extreme skill and experience that none of the current or recruited Duck quarterbacks have. Despite only playing in 10 games last year due to a broken foot, Adams still passed for 3,483 yards and 35 touchdowns to only eight interceptions. Very impressive numbers to say the least, even coming against lesser competition.

While it will be impossible to replace Mariota, Adams gives the Ducks the best chance of succeeding next season. His style of play fits very well for the offense that Head Coach Mark Helfrich plays. Along with the rest of the returning players and recruits on offense, the Ducks look set for the start of next season. Landing Adams makes Oregon a powerhouse yet again in the tough Pac-12.

Stay tuned to for the latest in Ducks sports news.

    Yes and we as fans are STOKED because Adams commands his offense as in he’s more Vocal than Marcus was and no disrespect to our dearly departed to the Buc’s! Adams is like Marcus in a lot of ways but I still think Oregon should get back to running the ball more between the Tackles of coarse. I think it’s funny ESPN’s way to early TOP 25 and Oregon who finished NO.2 in the Nation is ranked 6 with USC Ranked NO. 3 as in what KOOL AID are these MORON’S Drinking again. Oregon now with Adams and Coach Pellum in his 2nd year as DC should clearly be the clearcut Team to win the conference as in the PAC 12 South is loaded as in I certainly wouldn’t count USC as the favorite with UCLA, Arizona, ASU and even Utah. The North Division will be Oregon’s to lose as in only Stanford should be our toughest opponent. Any Thoughts from this great staff? STOKED to be a Duck!

      Thank you so much for the comment. I do agree with you that we need to get back to the running game, but the great part about the Ducks is that our offense is unpredictable. We now have a guy that operates in the same style that Marcus Mariota, Royce Freeman and Thomas Tyner are a year older, we have a ridiculously talented recruiting class, and so many returning weapons on offense. We have so many weapons on offense, we just need to put it all together this year. Like you, I am very stoked to be a Duck. Thanks so much for the read
