Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Mark Helfrich talked about 2015 QB recruits and Ducks' recruiting in general with Andrew Greif.

"We want to get the right guys. Everybody says that but that's all that matters. Absolutely you're going to come in second a lot in recruiting, that's going to happen, it's just a percentage game. As long as we're going to end up with the right guys when the letters come in -- and more importantly when those guys show up in the fall and go -- that's what matters."

Chantel Jennings shares part two of her interview with Scott Frost.

■ Kevin Gemmell outlines the Pac-12 media day lineup which starts July 23 in LA. Mark Helfrich, Marcus Mariota and Derrick Malone will be on hand for Oregon.

■ The next two weeks will feature former Oregon football players appearing at local youth fundraisers.

■ Mark Helfrich says there is no "smoking gun" regarding the recent spate of transfers.

■ Athlon Sports polled ten Pac-12 experts and asked their favorite stadium in the conference. Autzen came in first with 8 of 10 first place votes and second on the other two ballots. Potato salad stadium finished tied for last place, go figure.

■ Oregon athletes were recognized for their great academic work recently.

■ Tyson Alger says the Ducks' baseball recruiting philosophy won't change despite of MLB draft results.

None of these [recent] signings have come to the surprise of George Horton, who said before the draft he was expecting several of his incoming freshmen to choose the professional route. The lure of starting a professional career and money is often times a trump card, he said. But that hasn't stopped the Ducks from seeking out players that may potentially spurn Oregon for the pros.
