Former Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams Jr.’s status as a member of the Oregon Ducks was in question after he found out he had to take one class over the summer after believing he had graduated in May.
It all came down to one math final Thursday evening to determine if he would be able to play in Eugene this season, and he passed it with flying colors.
Late Thursday evening, he posted a picture to his Instagram of him holding his son and wearing his cap and gown. Emerald Daily shared the picture and stated that he would now be able to join the Ducks at their fall practices.
Hours before Adams took the test, he sent out a message thanking both his fans and critics for motivating him to be the best, whether it be positively or negatively. Adams proved the naysayers wrong and will now be able to give the Ducks the experience at quarterback they really need.
Adams is easily one of the best quarterbacks to come out of the FCS. He threw for over 10,000 yards and rushing for over 1,100 during his career with the Eagles. He will certainly be able to come in and make an immediate impact for the Ducks.
Adams will more than likely be the starting quarterback for the Ducks and he will face off against his former team as Oregon hosts Eastern Washington to kick off the season on September 5.
