Morning Oatmeal: Another dual-threat QB edition

New, 4 comments

Well, it looks like JC QB Jeremiah Masoli will sign with Oregon.  According to Scout.com, he would have been rated the number one JC QB going into next season.   Because he was a full qualifier out of high school, he's able to transfer after one year -- which means he has four years to play three.  While Moseley thinks he immediately enters the competition to start next year, Rickert thinks the Ducks may try to red shirt him unless they need him.  Again, I have to believe that this is at least a partial indictment of the current QB situation.  I like the fact that Oregon is getting looked at by the top dual-threat QB recruits -- but, if Costa wasn't injured and if Roper hadn't looked inconsistent through the spring drills (and with the presence of Thomas and Harper) I think there would have been less interest on Oregon's part.  And, I think this is supported by Bellotti's statement that he would prefer to have five QBs on the roster in the fall.  There were already six this spring before Masoli, which seems to indicate that there will be redshirts and/or position changes in the works.  

This is a few days old, but Moseley predicts the two-deep heading into fall camp.  The biggest surprise is seeing Crenshaw listed as #2 at RB over Blount, though Moseley does say that it  is "close, if not even."
