Oregon’s quarterback picture gained much needed clarity following Mark Helfrich’s nod to Vernon Adams. However, beyond the current campaign, much is unknown surrounding the signal-caller position. Offensive coordinator, Scott Frost and the aforementioned Helfrich, will look to solidify an incoming quarterback class that already includes one of the top dual-threats in the nation, Seth Green (4-Star/Allen, Texas).
In addition to a firm commitment from Green, Oregon will kickoff this weekend by hosting another hybrid passer in Terry Wilson (3-Star/Dell City, Okla.).
“I’m super excited to take this visit to Oregon,” said Wilson. “I’ve been looking forward to this trip since the spring when Oregon offered. My mom is coming with me and she’s pretty excited, too. I just can’t wait to see Eugene, meet the coaches and just get the overall experience of the game-day atmosphere. We’ve heard a lot about how great Eugene is so we’re just ready to see it.”
Although committed elsewhere (Nebraska), a strong showing by Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green is expected to sway the 6’3”, 190 lb. Wilson.
“Oregon has a full shot with me. I’m very open to the Ducks. This is going to be a big weekend for me. It’s going to be nice to see the offense in person and figure out how I fit in with them. I’m excited to watch Vernon [Adams] play; that’s pretty cool. But he’s only a one-year guy so that will leave the job open when I would arrive. That’s a big factor — having the chance to compete early.”
