CBS Sports is reporting that KVAL TV in Eugene sent out a Tweet earlier today saying the Ducks De’Anthony Thomas had a handle on the helmet for the upcoming Spring game at Autzen Stadium. In recent years the game has been to honor the Armed Forces complete with military flyovers before the game. The U of O Equipment manager denied the report but we, of course, will wait and see.
Oregon’s 2013 recruiting class should be on display during the scrimmage including Beaverton native and 5 star Running Back Thomas Tyner, who Rob Moseley of the Register Guard has predicted in an updated Two Deep Roster for the Class of 2013 as the #2 Running Back behind Sophomore.
In a recent poll here on AutzenZoo I asked who would likely make the 2013 roster on opening day from the Class of 2013 and the results were pretty much a dead heat between Tyner and Kicker Matt Wogan. Oregon has had some issues at the kicker position over the last few years and I think Wogan will be a nice addition on the field for the Ducks.
Oregon’s Spring Scrimmage will be held on Saturday, April 27th at 11am. Pac 12 Network will start tv coverage at 11am Pacific Time.
