Devon Allen is back with the Ducks and transitioning from track-shape to football-shape. With how deep the Oregon wide receiver corps are this year it's not necessary for the Ducks to rush him back but he'll certainly be a big boost to the unit when he's ready full go. W

Oregon WR Devon Allen said people didn't really recognize him too much in Rio, but when he did, it was "Hey! You're the guy that runs track and plays football."

The CFP summer meetings have ended and the biggest news is the announcement of the recusals for the season, which are the same as last year for the old committee members but now factor in three new members. Herb Deromedi (Central Michigan), Oregon AD Rob Mullens (can't vote for his Ducks), and Jeff Bower is recused from Southern Miss.

Mark Helfrich: Prukop has been better with the ball (0:22)

Early on in fall camp Oregon coach Mark Helfrich thought QB Dakota Prukop was being a bit careless with the ball, turning it over too much. But, in the last three weeks, that has improved as Prukop has settled in more.

Oregon running back Royce Freeman was letting the fall camp beard go through most of August. He said that he really hadn't had any time to take care of it, and even if he did, there was no reason since he only saw his teammates. He told me last week that he would shave once he couldn't "look at [himself] in the mirror anymore." Looks like that day finally came.

Oregon DC Brady Hoke wasn't thrilled with how the defense performed in its final scrimmage today. When asked if he wishes the group was further along, he said that's you always want. But the fact that he really wasn't happy with this scrimmage a week out from their season opener isn't a good sign for the Ducks.

Spoke with Oregon fifth year senior WR Dwayne Stanford. I asked for his breakdown of the DBs and QBs through camp (with the depth chart coming out in the next few days. On the defensive backs: He said he has been impressed with Ugo Amadi, Arrion Springs and Malik Lovette. When asked which guy defends him best, he joked that they've all done an "equally bad job." On the quarterbacks: Stanford said Dalota Prukop has really taken ahold of the offense. He has been surprised with true freshman Justin Herbert. Said he thought he looked pretty good this summer but had no idea how well he'd play this fall.

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.
