Don't expect a QB announcement from Mark Helfrich before the Ducks' final fall scrimmage on Thursday. He said following the scrimmage he'll sit down with all the coaches as they develop their depth chart for the UC-Davis game week. All signs point to grad transfer Dakota Prukop being named the starter, but will be interesting to see where Justin Herbert falls in the pecking order. Several have been very impressed with the 6-foot-6 true freshman.

Oregon defensive back Chris Seisay has left the program and will seek a transfer, the school confirmed to ESPN Sunday. He missed eight games with an ankle injury last season and, based on camp, it was likely he'd have a tough time cracking the two-deep. The starting corners project to be Arrion Springs and Ugo Amadi with Ty Griffin and Malik Lovette the likely backups. In a text to The Oregonian newspaper, Seisay said playing time wasn't an issue "Just doing what's best for my future," he wrote. "All love to ducks. Gonna miss my teammates." An Oregon spokesman said the school has granted Seisay a full release.

Mark Helfrich wants to decide Oregon's starting quarterback by Aug. 26 (seven more practices). Graduate transfer Dakota Prukop is in the lead but "it's not some huge chasm between him and everybody else." Helfrich sees Prukop settling down and "playing point guard" with so much talent around him, rather than trying to make every heroic play. Helfrich has talked to the quarterbacks about being like John Stockton and distributing to Karl Malone and Jeff Hornacek. "Of course, I have to explain who all those guys are," Helfrich said.

The Ducks moved utility man Charles Nelson into an exclusively offensive role for this season. Defensive back coach John Neal says he felt comfortable with the move because the Ducks have developed so much more depth in the secondary.

Oregon offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said he didn't like how the offense turned the ball over in Tuesday's scrimmage. "We don't want to beat ourselves." The best part of the scrimmage? It was only the first one.
