CHENEY, Wash. — After much speculation about Oregon’s interest in a quarterback transferring into the football program, it looks like that speculation is now closer to becoming a reality.
Eastern Washington’s record-setting quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. says he has received a scholarship offer from the University of Oregon and will visit the school over the upcoming weekend.
Adams told The Spokesman-Review on Wednesday that he will fly to Eugene on Friday and return home Sunday.
The strong-armed Adams, who will be a senior next season, owns nearly every major passing record at Eastern Washington, a perennial FCS power.
He would be seeking to replace Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota who decided to forego his senior season for a chance at the NFL.
Dave Williford, a spokesman for the Oregon football team, says he cannot comment on any potential player transfers.
Adams was the most valuable player in the Big Sky Conference last season, and threw seven touchdown passes in a 59-52 loss at Washington.
The Ducks are coming off of a loss to Ohio State in the national championship game earlier this month.
If Adams were to transfer, he wouldn’t be available for spring practice since he’s not scheduled to graduate until after the spring term has concluded.
