Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Chip Kelly, Kenjon Barner, and John Boyett talk with reporters after practice yesterday. Video courtesy of OregonSportsNet, KVAL and the Register Guard.

• Aaron Fentress reports running back can now step into the spotlight.

"I think he's ready for that role of being the guy," UO running backs coach Gary Campbell said. "I think he wants that. Most guys of that caliber want that role. But it's, can you handle it? That's the thing."

• Rob Moseley has a few notes and photos from day one of practice plus the initial spring roster.

Mark Flores has his weekly recruiting update and focuses on incoming OL Kyle Long.

Ted Miller lists the top Pac-12 newcomers where you'll find Arik Armstead.

The true freshman arrives in Eugene this spring after one of the more closely watched recruiting sagas on the West Coast. While more than a few folks believe the 6-foot-8, 280 pounder is a prototypical left OFFENSIVE tackle, he's going to at least start off on defense at Oregon. He's athletic enough to play end, and could immediately be in the picture to replace the departed Terrell Turner.

• The Oregon football team is set to to go bowling in the 2nd annual Oregon Football Bowling Tournament on April 14th in memory of Officer Chris Kilcullen.

• John Canzano has an audio podcast with his special guest, former Oregon All-American Mel Renfro.

• Aaron Fentress says there are five questions facing the Ducks during spring practice. The biggest one on my list is number two on Aaron's.

Can the Ducks find new playmakers among the 15 wide receivers on the roster in order to take pressure away from the running game and create even more mismatches on the perimeter?
