Vernon Adams is going to play for an elite FBS program, after all.
The record-setting Eastern Washington quarterback announced on Monday that he has indeed decided to transfer to Oregon, which had been recruiting him to leave EWU and replace Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota as the Ducks' starting quarterback. Adams, who will be a senior, threw for 3,483 yards, 35 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 10 games in 2014, and rushed for 285 yards and six touchdowns.
Included in those totals, of course, was his 475-yard, 7-touchdown performance in a 59-52 loss to Washington at Husky Stadium on Sept. 6. (Oregon, by the way, visits Husky Stadium on Oct. 17).
Adams threw for 4,994 yards, 55 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 15 games as a sophomore in 2013, finishing second in the Walter Payton Award voting for the best player at the FCS level.
Here's the story on Adams' transfer from the Oregonian, which includes comments from Adams and Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin and athletic director Bill Chaves.
