Oregon QB Commit Excels at Elite 11 Camp

A 4-star QB prospect, Seth Green, had already committed to Oregon when he moved and enrolled in Allan High School in Dallas, TX, which is the same high school that 5-star QB prospect Kyler Murray attended. Clearly, Green has no problem filling big shoes. For more on that topic, check out Andrew Nemec’s fantastic article for OregonLive.com. What I found most interesting is the fact that Green excelled at an Elite 11 camp in Dallas.

Green will have the advantage of not having to immediately replace Marcus Mariota.

According to Nemec’s article, out of “80 or so” QBs at the event, Green would finish in the “top four or five.” This is interesting, as his 40-yard dash time was actually slower than expected, with him running a 4.83.

Along with a SPARQ score of 106.95 (by comparison, ex-Duck and current Carolina Panther Jonathan Stewart, scored a 97.54), this means that he must have been truly impressive to score that high despite his lackluster 40 yard time. While many people may focus on that lackluster time as a negative, especially at a college like Oregon where speed is their identity, I think it shows something very positive.

Green could be the next Oregon QB after Vernon Adams Jr.

Green could be the next Oregon QB after Vernon Adams Jr., a 5th-year transfer from FCS powerhouse Eastern Washington.

What that shows me is that he has something else to offer besides speed, and with a 6’4 and 216 lb frame, he certainly should. His high placement among the QBs also indicates he isn’t just going to be another athlete, but has promise as a passer.

Green’s willingness to step in as a starter on a team with big shoes to fill could become an important asset as well. While he won’t be coming in this season, he will be in Eugene next year. And with all of the hype around senior transfer Vernon Adams Jr. right now, he could very well be coming to replace another Oregon great.

In the coming months, all Oregon fans should keep an eye to the future and follow this kid’s senior year in Dallas. Around this time next year, Green could be the freshman phenom that we’re all ranting about.
