Oregon offensive lineman Mana Greig, a redshirt senior from St. Louis High School (Waimanalo, Hawaii), enters his fifth season in the Oregon program.
Before joining the Ducks, Greig was a member of a very successful prep program. St. Louis HS went 11-1 in back-to-back seasons during his sophomore and junior years and 7-2 his last year. He was also able to earn a spot in the Hawaii All-Star Football Classic featuring many of the top prospects from around the state. Greig earned high remarks by ESPN recruiting who listed him as the No. 25 C prospect in the 2009 class.
In 2009, Greig participated on the practice/scout team while redshirting his first year with the Ducks.
In 2010, Greig played in seven games during the season including all three non-conference games. The majority of his playing time came in the season-opening 72-0 win against New Mexico when he played a season-high 54 plays. In winter conditioning, Greig showed off his athleticism by posting the third-fastest shuttle time by any offensive linemen at 4.53 seconds.
In 2011, Greig appeared in six games his sophomore season including a season-high 35 plays against Oregon State in the Civil War.
In 2012, Greig was one of the top reserve linemen for the first six games and earned the starting RG job against Arizona State and Colorado before being lost to injury for the season. He appeared in eight games total. Below is a video of Greig as he recovers from the injury and works to see the playing field again.
He also earned Academic All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention last season.
Going into next season, Greig will battle for the starting RG spot left vacant by graduated senior Ryan Clanton – Kyle Long‘s LG starting spot is open as well. This is assuming he makes a full recovery by the start of the season. He did not participate in the 2013 Spring Game as he’s still recovering from that injury.
