QB Prukop atop depth chart for Oregon opener
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Montana State graduate transfer Dakota Prukop is listed atop Oregon's depth chart at quarterback for the season opener.
The No. 24 Ducks released the depth chart for the first week of the season Friday. Prukop was listed ahead of freshman Justin Herbert on the two-deep for the home game against UC Davis on Sept. 3.
Prukop passed for 3,025 yards and 28 touchdowns with 10 interceptions at Montana State last year. He follows in the footsteps of Oregon's starter for the opener last season, Vernon Adams, a graduate transfer from Eastern Washington.
Herbert, a local prospect out for Sheldon High School in Eugene, threw for 3,170 yards and 37 touchdowns as a senior last year. He won the backup job over redshirt freshman Travis Jonsen and freshman Terry Wilson, who had both played in Oregon's annual Spring Game.
