Terrence Whitehead was initially recruited to play defense for the Ducks, Whitehead is another Oregon running back who is sadly underappreciated. 

While he wasn’t big on celebrations or attention during his time in Eugene, he left a huge impact on the field and in the history books. With 2,832 career rushing yards for Oregon, Whitehead finds himself eighth on Oregon’s all-time list.
