According to ESPN bloggers Ted Miller and Kevin Gemmell there was one name at the top of the list of the Best Pac-12 players of 2013. Oregon Quarterback Marcus Mariota made #1 on the list when the final release came out Friday.
The Oregon Offense thrived in 2013 scoring an average 45.5 points per game. Of course, the only let down was due to a leg injury that derailed the Ducks in the month of November with a loss in the Conference game of the year at Stanford. The bright side, Mariota will be back for 2014 along with Center Hroniss Grasu, who also made the ESPN list at number 23. Other Ducks were also sprinked throughout including Wide Receiver Josh Huff at number 24 and Ifo Ekpre-Olomu at 15.
Several other standouts from the Pac-12 in 2013 included Arizona Running Back Ka’Deem Carey(#2), UCLA Linebacker Anthony Barr(#3), Arizona State Defensive Tackle Will Sutton(#7), and Stanford Running Back Tyler Gaffney(#13).
Oregon is now preparing for National Signing Day on February 5th when the 2014 recruiting class will be unveiled. The first chance to see the 2014 Ducks comes with the Spring Game on May 3rd at 11am.
