Adams, a graduating senior was granted a release to speak to other schools and landed in Oregon. Of course, his first game would be versus his former school.
The Ducks will be playing it’s first game post-Marcus Mariota, and Adams seems ready to own the reigns under Ducks coach Mark Helfrich.
Similar to Mariota, Adams can equally kill you with the pass or burn with his mobility for long runs.
In his career season in 2013-14, Adams threw for over 4,994 yards and 55 touchdowns. Also scrambled for 605 yards and 6 touchdowns, so his dual threat ability is warranted.
Can Adams finally get over the hump and win the National Championship, big expectations for the green and yellow this season.
