LaMichael James, RB, Oregon – Anyone who saw his video game-like run against Tennessee last year knows what James can do. He’s built low to the ground and has excellent speed, so you never know when he’s going to squirt out of a pile and into the clear.
• Bruce Feldman says that Oregon has the best backfield in the country with the trio of LaMichael James, Darron Thomas and Kenjon Barner.
• Ted Miller breaks down the players from the Pac-12 on Phil Steele's list of draft eligible players with a shot at the NFL. You'll find a few familiar Oregon names on the list.
• Dale Newton introduces incoming freshman OL Andre Yruretagoyena. 6'5", 260lbs. with a 4.94 forty out of Chaparral HS in Scottsdale, AZ.
On the field, he's punishing, nasty and relentless, nothing like the normal and well-adjusted guy you'd find hanging out with friends. There are linebackers and defensive backs picking themselves up all over Arizona with bruises that attest to his effectiveness in that area.
