Former Eastern Washington QB Vernon Adams to transfer to Oregon

Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams, an FCS All-American, says he will transfer to Oregon where he will be eligible to play next season and compete to replace Marcus Mariota.

Adams posted on Twitter: "Oregon it is!" with an Instagram of the Oregon logo.

Adams has been a record-breaking, three-year starter at Eastern Washington and is on target to gradute in May. NCAA rules allow players who have graduated to transfer to another school without having to sit out a season.

The Ducks are looking for a replacement Mariota, the Heisman Trophy winner who declared for the NFL draft after his junior season, giving Adams a chance to start immediately.

Adams has passed for 10,438 yards and 110 touchdowns, with 31 interceptions at EWU. He also helped the Eagles upset Pac-12 team Oregon State two seasons ago and nearly beat Washington last year.
