Is Oregon trying to bring in another QB from outside the program?
A year after bringing in graduate transfer Vernon Adams Jr. to be its starting quarterback, Oregon seems to be in the market for another quarterback from outside the program.
Offensive coordinator Scott Frost has apparently keyed in on Trinity Valley C.C. (Texas) quarterback Jerod Evans. Evans is a big QB at 6'4″, 225 pounds and has been spectacular this season, throwing for 38 touchdowns and only three picks.
“I'm getting a lot of interest from a lot of schools,” Evans said, per 247 Sports. “In the last week or two Oregon has jumped into the mix. I've been talking to Scott Frost a lot more and he seems to be fairly interested.”
Per 247 Sports, Evans said that Memphis, Cal and UNLV are among the schools that have shown an interest in him, though he doesn't have any official visits set up.
Evans would be eligible to play for two years at the FBS level.
