Football: Oregon Ducks’ backup quarterback might be true freshman Justin Herbert out of Sheldon High
By Ryan Thorburn
Herbert ran the No. 2 offense during Monday’s situational practice and is in the mix to back up senior graduate transfer Dakota Prukop this season.
“I think he’s definitely in competition for a spot where he’s traveling, where he could be more than just a No. 3 guy and moving that way up,” quarterbacks coach David Yost said. “You never know what can happen as we go.”
Prukop separated himself from the other three candidates during last week’s scrimmage and is expected to win the starting job this week.
Travis Jonsen is still holding out hope that he can remain at the top of the depth chart with a strong finish to the competition. Offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said the redshirt freshman responded well after struggling in the first scrimmage.
“Bouncing back was definitely good,” Jonsen said. “Ever since then I think I’ve done a lot better, and I think the coaches have seen that as well. So it’s only up from here.”
