LinkedUp: Oregon at 3 in Early Top 25, A Glance at 2014 Draft Possibilities, and ‘Territory’ Recruiting

Welcome into Another Tuesday LinkedUp. With the Oregon Spring Game in the books, the Offense won 65-10, the folks over at ESPN have updated their waaaaaay to early Top 25 Rankings heading into the 2013 season and the Ducks moved up. It was pointed out on Twitter that Ohio State was named #1, shortly after it was announced they would have three prime time games on National TV this season. In case you missed the NFL Draft, there were five Ducks taken overall and two signed Free Agent contracts with teams. (should be interesting to see what we get on TV here in the Eugene/Springfield area this upcoming season.)

Also looking past the 2013 Season, since we had five Ducks taken this weekend in the NFL Draft, Athlon Sports has a look at who may enter the NFL in 2014. There are several Ducks on the list including De’Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota, but of course it doesn’t mean anything at this point, we still have to play the season.

The folks at Bleacher Report have a look at recruiting and who does best out of their ‘territory’, and Oregon made the list.

Finally late last night it was announced that Stanford Quarterback Josh Nunes is retiring from football because of a ‘freak injury’. From the report it seems like it may have happened in the weight room. The Junior was likely to be Kevin Hogan’s backup this season, but it now looks like two freshman will duke it out for the opportunity at the backup role.
