Vernon Adams’ arrival at Oregon has been delayed by the completion of a class at Eastern Washington; passing it is necessary for the quarterback’s addition to the Ducks’ 2015 roster as a graduate transfer.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Lindsey Schnell, who wrote a profile on Adams, he takes his final exam for the class on Thursday. If he passes, the productive FCS star might be able to participate in Friday’s practice. Adams told SI.com he’s “studying like crazy” for what he described as his “last shot” at making this move from EWU to Oregon that he announced back in February.
Oregon starts classes in September, so he’ll be able to enroll then. The unknowns are what happens if Adams does not pass his final class, or whether he will be a factor in the quarterback competition given the steep learning curve that comes with his late arrival.
Adams originally intended to be on campus in June, but this last class has kept him from working out, even outside of official team activities, with any of his future teammates.
Meanwhile, redshirt junior Jeff Lockie continues to earn praise from coaches and teammates alike for his work with the team. After backing up Marcus Mariota for the last two seasons, Lockie is hoping for the keys to the high-powered Ducks’ offense. If Adams passes that exam on Thursday, he’ll have another tough test waiting for him in Eugene.
