Tight End: Oregon’s New Elite Position

Ryan Robertson Editorials

Oregon Head Coach Mario Cristobal was an offensive lineman. He loves to recruit and coach the big guys in the middle, often giving the Ducks one of the better units in the country. He is improving at recruiting pass-catchers, and what would an offensive line coach love more than pass-catchers who can block?

The tight end room at Oregon might be the most talented in the country. From Spencer Webb, who recently tweeted that he loves blocking more than catching at this point, to Moliki Matavao and Terrance Ferguson, two four-star, true freshman tight ends, all the way to Cam McCormick, who has yet to make an impact in college due to injury but constantly comes in to the season as the starter: it is clear the room is great. Add to that equation Patrick Herbert, who reportedly has tremendous chemistry with expected starting QB Anthony Brown, and the room suddenly looks elite.

In a year where Oregon will be searching for an identity on offense, having such an elite position group should go a long way to proving who the Ducks are. How are you feeling about Tight Ends at Oregon?
