Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
• Joel Gunderson takes a closer look at Byron Marshall, the next man in after losing Kenjon Barner to graduation.

Marshall has all the talent to be the next star. The coaches see it, which is half the battle.

“He’s a guy I’ve got a lot of faith in,” running back coach Gary Campbell said.

• OL Elijah George from Las Vegas committed to the Ducks over the weekend after an official visit.

• Aaron Fentress takes a closer look at Oregon commit Doug Brenner out of Portland's Jesuit high school.

• Ted Werth has a detailed report on Oregon commit WR Devon Allen who figures to join the track team as well as play football.

Just how fast is Devon Allen?  Consider this — last spring at the Arcadia Classic in California he won 3 individual events and 2 relays on one weekend.  In his three individual races, the 200m and 110 and 330 hurdles, he posted marks that were all ranked in the top 5 in the United States.  Not long afterward, Allen was named the ESPN’s Gatorade State Boys Track & Field Athlete of the Year for the State of Arizona.  The award is given based on athletic production, high academic achievement and exemplary personal character.  Yes, Devon Allen, like so many Duck Recruits these days, is a model citizen, and he sports a 3.60 GPA.

Seems that our football recruits are bolstering a lot of other teams as well. They is fast!
