Quack Fix: Ducks get verbal from Hawaii QB recruit, men's golf earns top seed at NCAAs

The Civil War Classic is tonight. Who's going? Let us know below in the poll. Anyway, there's not a ton out there today, but here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:

  • Oregon has reportedly landed the first skill position player of its 2011 recruiting class, and he hails from Jeremiah Masoli's alma mater. Marcus Mariota, a 6'3", 180-pounder out of St. Louis in Hawaii, has verbally committed to the Ducks, according to Scout. Although Mariota is currently only considered a two-star recruit, he's reportedly very underrated. This will likely turn out to be a good get for coach Chip Kelly and the Ducks considering St. Louis's recent history of strong QBs (namely Timmy Chang, Jason Gesser and Masoli).
  • The Oregon men's golf team will be the top seed at the NCAA Championships, which kick off June 1 at The Honors Course in Chattanooga, Tenn. The Ducks, who recently won the Southwest Regional, are making their third straight appearance in the national event.
  • The No. 21 Ducks take on the Beavers tonight at 6:30 in the Civil War Classic at PGE Park in Portland. The game will air on Comcast SportsNet. Oregon has only four games remaining to make one final push for the postseason, including a 3-game series at PK Park this weekend against California. Who's going to tonight's game?
