At this point, all Ducks fan want is to have Vernon Adams, Jr. make the official move to Eugene. With the former Eastern Washington star stuck in Cheney, Washington, until he graduates in June, Head Coach Mark Helfrich and staff will have to work without him for the time being. But yesterday, according to Rob Moseley of, Adams made an appearance at Spring Practice.

For most of the players, seeing Adams at practice must have been great. Since news broke that Adams would be taking his talents to the University of Oregon for his final year of eligibility, speculation has been high. Questions flying around about Adams’ ability to run the ball, as well as his capability to adapt to consistent top-level competition being an under-sized quarterback. While Ducks fans can dwell on things that could cause issues, the route to take is one of positivity.

It never gets old watching someone beat up on Oregon State

Adams coming to Spring practice shows a lot about his dedication to this team. Playing at Eastern Washington was certainly fun for Adams, but he has been waiting his entire life to strap it up with the best — something he will be able to do when he is listed on the official Ducks roster.

Experts and fans alike expect Adams to be the Week 1 starting quarterback, but nothing is cemented as of yet. A long list of guys, including Jeff LockieMorgan Mahalak and Travis Jonsen will be vying for playing time this year. While it seems inevitable that Jonsen will red-shirt his freshman season, much like Marcus Mariota did, Adams has a great chance to come in and showcase his talent.

The quarterback battle will be one of interest for many fans. Spring Practice, the Spring Game on May 2, and Summer Practice will all go towards determining who will follow in the footsteps of Mariota. There is no better place than for you to get your up-to-date Oregon Ducks news.
