Though he has only played in four games this season, Oregon sophomore wide receiver Darren Carrington has made quite the impact. Carrington is second on the team with 398 yards and four touchdowns. His average of 24.9 yards per catch would rank third nationally, though he doesn't have quite enough game experience to qualify this season.
It's also worth noting that with Carrington, the Ducks are 4-0.

“It's a combination on some of his plays down the field,” said wide receivers Matt Lubick of Carrington's deep play abilities, per The Oregonian. “One of them is our quarterback staying alive. The other is running that route at full speed. We work scramble drills all the time, but he's as good as it gets because he never slows down.
“Some of it is being in the right place at the right time, but a lot of times he puts himself in that right place.”
Carrington's size and speed are off the charts. The Oregon coaches seem to love the fact that Carrington only knows one speed: fast.
“He knows one speed and that's full speed,” Lubick said. “As a coach, that's pretty fun to coach.”
