Oregon football is just a few months away from kicking off its regular season and after a strong showing this spring, the expectations are at an all-time high.
The Ducks showed fans just how explosive the offense is going to be with an exciting spring game and the defense won’t be too, shabby, either with a few All-American candidates in Kayvon Thibodeaux, Noah Sewell, and Mykael Wright. The defense has a handful of future pros on it, mostly in the linebacking corps and secondary.
Everyone was hoping to make a climb up the depth chart heading into the final months of the offseason and into fall camp but a few, in particular, improved their stocks.
Oregon is in need of a productive tight end and Terrance Ferguson proved that he can be that guy in the spring game.
With DJ Johnson out and Spencer Webb and Patrick Herbert easing their way back into live action, the freshman stepped up and led all tight ends with four catches for 60 yards. He looked like the best tight end in the spring game and almost certainly improved his stock.
If the Ducks have health issues at tight end this season, Ferguson is going to be a top option as starter even in his first year.
Ferguson looked like the real deal this spring and he’s an early candidate to surprise this season.
