ESPN: Oregon's Top Newcomer for 2023 Will Be on the Offensive Line

Recommended Posts

 South Carolina defender Jordan Burch is believed by many to be one of the best gets of any team from the transfer portal all winter. A highly-rated recruit, a player with loads of potential at a position of need, it makes sense why a pass-rusher pairing up with Dan Lanning in Eugene would inspire excitement.

They all have potential, the offseason question is who will turn potential into action, leadership and wins. I certainly hope we see more out of our potential going forward. 


I think it will be interesting to watch some of these junior and senior transfers work to live up to their potential. A guy like Burch is working toward a job in the NFL, Williams too. Will they bring their best season ever as they know this is the opportunity to shine? 


A freshman or sophomore may not have the sense of urgency, nor the experience to know what it takes. These older transfers, may, and hopefully will bring leadership, intelligence, and effort we need to take the next step.


Last year there were many questions about Nix and he more than stepped up. Hopefully some of these guys on defense will do the same.

With the necessary adjustments to a new guy’s methods, and limited spring/fall practices to implement those changes, getting five veterans and new faces working together at the level they’ll need to in order to protect Bo, open holes and down field block will be a challenge.
