Wow - lots of quack out there today. Enjoy.
- Rob Moseley takes a look at Lavasier Tuinei as the obvious pick to replace some of the production at the wide receiver spot lost by the graduation of Jeff Maehl and D.J. Davis. With all the young talent coming in at the position, Moseley also notes that former walk-on and current squad leader Justin Hoffman might be fighting to have his scholarship renewed.
- Ken Goe focuses on the tight end position in his story today, writing that the Ducks appear to be set at the position with David Paulson and Brandon Williams at the top of the depth chart. Goe notes that the Ducks like to run plays featuring two tight ends on the field, but had to go away from that last season after Williams broke his hand in the second game.
- For those looking for a Josh Huff injury update, here it is: "Josh was at practice today." John Hunt also has a typical Chip Kelly quote concerning the recent NCAA decision to ban schools from subscribing to recruiting web sites.
Moseley and Chris Courtney both have practice reports up from yesterday's spring practice. Both noted that TEs Williams and Paulson repeatedly took advantage of linebackers deep in coverage. Up next, the Ducks will hold a scrimmage tomorrow, with officials on hand.
- Jerry Ulmer has a very nice piece on 2012 football and track recruit Oshay Dunmore and his quick rise from national obscurity to getting offers from several Pac-10 schools. The article includes quotes from Dunmore on how excited he was when Kelly offered over the phone and how he made his decision to verbally commit at Oregon's junior day on April 2.
- In former basketball player news, Bob Rickert has a short blog post noting the current whereabouts of Luke Jackson, Chamberlain Oguchi and Ivan Johnson. All three players found homes in the NBA's D-League this past season.
- Steve Ritchie has a pretty lengthy writeup from the Pepsi Team Invitational that was held over the weekend.
- Curtis Anderson writes that Brianne Theisen and David Klech will make their outdoor debuts in the heptathlon and decathlon, respectively. Anderson also notes that English Gardner was named the Pac-10 track athlete of the week after her sensational weekend at the Pepsi Team Invitational.
- It was announced yesterday that Caster Semenya will compete at the Prefontaine Classic on June 4. Semenya, of course, is the South African runner who was held out from competition for most of 2010 as she underwent gender testing.
