Recruiting Update: Hopeful Quarterback of the Future

Autzen Entrance 12, Michigan State, 14, KC

News

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.”

    Not so sure that Seth Green is considered one of the “top dual threats in the country”. He isn’t even considered the top dual threat in his HS this season; he was beaten out for the starting job by an underclassman.

    Tua, please.

    • hokieduck

      By that I mean, what is up with Tua, please, Mark. Is there any new info about him either paying or in recruitment.

      • Mark Gilbert

        I’m wondering the same thing, Oregon offers Kelly as a 2017 and still offer for Tua T. And I don’t understand why other than for some reason Oregon doent feel he is right for their team, onlky reason I can come up with which I have a hard time believing but its gotta be somethig like that.

        Playing (as in high school now). Geez.

    I bet Seth Green wishes he went back to Minnesota for his senior season. He is likely to get very little playing time at Allen this year unless the starting junior quarterback, Mitchell Jonke is injured. Jonke has had an excellent start to the season and is obviously their starter. He was also undefeated last year on JV. That doesn’t bode well for Green’s college career after sitting for his senior season in high school.
