Day one had a significant disappointment for the men’s track team, who were not expected to contend for a title. Oregon’s Damarcus Simpson, the national leader in the long jump, failed to make the final. This dealt a significant blow to Oregon’s top ten team hopes.

Oregon men did advance two runners in the Men’s 1,500 as well as one runner in the Men’s 100 from Wednesday’s preliminary action. Sam Prakel and Mick Stanovsek worked together to make the 1,500 final while Cravon Gillespie advanced in the 100.

Baseball had a total of four players selected in this years major league draft this year after a disappointing ninth place finish in the Pac 12.

247 sports looks at Oregon’s depth, or lack thereof, at the tight end position this coming season. Jacob Breeland is the likely starter, and Cam McCormick is likely to contribute, but after that the depth is questionable.
