Oregon coach Willie Taggart said he we really impressed with how QB Justin Herbert played in the spring game, but "couldn't say anyone is at the top of the depth chart" at quarterback going into summer conditioning. If the decision about a starter was made based on how the quarterbacks played on Saturday, of course, he said it would be Herbert, but more will go into the decision than that game.

Sophomore Malik Lovette is one of a handful of players that has been moved around since Willie Taggart got to Oregon. The transition from DB to WR has gone smoothly so far, he said. He's excited to introduce himself as a receiver this Saturday in Oregon's spring game.

Oregon center Jake Hanson said that early enrollee Jordon Scott (6-foot-1, 335 pounds) has been one of the toughest guys he has gone up against at Oregon. Scott could be one of a few freshman to see major time for the Ducks in 2017.
