Vernon Adams Jr. thought everything was in the clear for him to transfer to Oregon after he believed that he graduated from Eastern Washington this spring. That doesn’t seem to be the case after it was reported that he did not meet the standards needed to earn a degree from the latter university.
According to oregonlive.com, Adams Jr’s status as a Duck this upcoming season is in jeopardy after it was reported that he did not meet EWU’s graduation standards. Everything still seems to be a go for Adams Jr to join the Ducks, but it may take longer than he intended.
Oregon opens camp on August 10 and EWU’s summer classes ends on August 14. Barring anymore setbacks, Adams Jr should be ready to join the Ducks in time for their September 5 season opener, coincidentally against Eastern Washington.
College Spun reported via Bruce Feldman that Adams Jr will be finishing up his one math class that he needed to graduate sometime this week. Although he walked in EWU’s spring graduation, he told oregonlive that he needed one more math class to finish his degree.
Re: #Oregon grad transfer: I'm told by a source close to Vernon Adams he is finishing up a math class in the next week or so as was planned.

This seems to have been the plan all along after he had already been admitted to Oregon earlier this week.
I am certainly excited to see Adams Jr hit the field for the Ducks and I can’t wait to see what storylines unfold when he faces off against his former team.
