There’s a reason Oregon football is so highly regarded by some of the top publications following spring ball. The Ducks just have a ton of talent and they showcased it in the spring game.
Oregon has as much talent as anyone in the Pac-12 and that’s scary news considering the Ducks are two-time reigning conference champs. They beat USC in the title game a year ago in a season that didn’t look like it was even going to take place and they return some key pieces from that team on both sides of the ball.
The Ducks have a major question at quarterback that many believed Anthony Brown would answer, but the spring game showed us that he may not be the clear option.
Both the running back and receiver rooms are loaded and the offensive line should be solid once again despite Penei Sewell moving on (he didn’t play last year, but you get the point).
Who could break out on the offensive side of the ball in 2021?
The tight end position has left a lot to be desired over the past few years in Eugene and there may be a rising star already on campus ready to change that.
Terrance Ferguson is just a true freshman and he did enroll early, but he looked like a veteran in the spring game, catching four passes for 60 yards. He looked like a legit threat in the passing game which is more than can be said for Oregon’s tight ends over the past few years.
Spencer Webb and Patrick Herbert are making their way back and could be nice replacements if DJ Johnson isn’t able to go but if either of those guys doesn’t live up to their potential, don’t be surprised if Ferguson slides into that two-deep and carves out a nice role for himself.
Ferguson screams future All-Pac-12 tight end.
