  Oregon will open the 2022 season in the top 15 of the Associated Press poll for a four straight year. The Ducks are No. 11 with a total of 831 points in the AP preseason top 25 poll released Monday. It is the 14th time in the last 15 seasons Oregon will open the year ranked and third time in four years UO is No. 11 in the preseason poll. The Ducks, who are No. 12 in the preseason AFCA coaches poll, went 10-4 and won the Pac-12 North division before losing in the conference championship game and Alamo Bowl last season and finished No. 22 in the final AP poll. The second highest-ranked Pac-12 team, Oregon is behind No. 7 Utah from the conference with only No. 14 USC also ranked within the league and UCLA received votes. - The Oregonian

  Oregon Ducks football players are the latest to band together to form a collective that will pool name, image and likeness compensation related to an online community. The Eugene NIL Club launched Wednesday via YOKE, the same outlet that gained early adoption last year by college athletes looking to earn NIL compensation by playing fans in video games via its platform, with the goal of supporting at least 75 players. Donors to the collective can give any amount starting at $5 per month to participate in message boards and chat rooms, digital events with players and to watch player-generated content related to games and practices. For at least $25 per month, a member will receive a Justin Herbert Oregon jersey and for at least $100 per month a donor will be invited to a steak dinner with players this fall.

By midnight Wednesday, 182 members had pledged over $4,600 towards the club's monthly goal of $50,000. By comparison, the University of Pittsburgh launched the Steel City NIL Club on Wednesday and raised over $8,200 via 340 members. YOKE says it has an 18% "platform fee" associated with running the various team-related collectives, which also include similar operations at Arkansas, Auburn, Kansas State and Michigan State, among others. - The Oregonian

  The Oregon Ducks football team will open the 2022 season with the same ranking in the coaches poll as it had last year. The Ducks are No. 12 in the preseason poll released Monday with 734 points, second-highest among Pac-12 teams. Oregon, which finished 10-4 last season and lost in the Pac-12 Championship game and Alamo Bowl, will be ranked to start a season ranked for the 14th time in the 15 seasons. The Ducks are scheduled to play two other ranked teams: No. 3 Georgia and No. 8 Utah. No. 15 USC also was ranked from the Pac-12, while UCLA and Oregon State also received votes. - The Oregonian

  No Oregon Ducks position group has been more significantly and enormously enhanced this offseason than the interior defensive line. Starters Brandon Dorlus, Popo Aumavae and Keyon Ware-Hudson all missed spring following winter surgeries and have returned to the field. Jordon Riley and Casey Rogers each arrived from Nebraska, where they played for Ducks defensive line coach Tony Tuioti. Then Sir Mells and Ben Roberts arrived, giving Oregon seven more players to open fall camp - two more scholarship players than the Ducks had in the spring.

"Going through the spring...when you're banged up, you realize, 'OK, this is the place where we got to try to make this a strength,'" Oregon coach Dan Lanning said. "Casey and Jordon are obviously guys Coach Tuioti had worked with in the past. So we had a really intimate knowledge of them and their work ethic and what kind of players they are. That certainly helped us. "But I can't say enough good things. I'll tell you one guy that I don't think is getting enough praise is Brandon Dorlus. He didn't go through the spring. But Brandon's leadership, his work ethic, those guys follow in. I've been really excited to see that. Obviously, Popo and Keyon back is a big piece of our future success. Tony is an extreme perfectionist and (defensive coordinator Tosh) Lupoi also has an extensive background in the front seven. Those guys being able to develop these guys, I can't say enough for guys that we didn't necessarily recruit but they're buy-in." - The Oregonian

  Oregon opened fall camp with its top offensive lineman limited. T.J. Bass, a first team all-Pac-12 selection by the league's coaches last season, was one of the only limited players for the Ducks during their first practice of fall camp Friday afternoon at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. There was no apparent or obvious injury to Bass. After stretching, freshman receiver Justius Lowe went to the side to work with a trainer and rode an exercise bike. Oregon coach Dan Lanning said the issues for Bass and Lowe were not significant. Otherwise, there weren't any apparent absences for UO. - The Oregonian

  Oregon's tight end room has added depth and speed from the defense. Terrell Tilmon, who had five tackles while appearing on special teams last season, has moved from outside linebacker to tight end before the start of fall camp on Friday. "We felt like he would give us his best chance of helping our football team and being able to impact us was going to be there on the offensive side of the ball," Oregon coach Dan Lanning said. "I also think he can have a big role on special teams as well. We were in the offensive meeting (Tuesday) and (offensive coordinator Kenny) Dillingham asked the question who's our fastest tight end and all the tight ends point to Tilmon; he can run a little bit. Excited, it's still a new position for him. He's still developing there so we'll see what it looks like in fall camp."

At 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, as of last year's roster, Tilmon has comparable height to UO's other tight ends but is 20-30 pounds lighter than the other four. Cam McCormick, Terrance Ferguson and Moliki Matavao each said Tilmon's been a good addition to the room during player-ed practices this summer. "He's been great to have in the room," McCormick said. "I think it helps; the depth in the room is huge. Being able to help everybody get rest. He's learning a lot. There's probably a million things coming at him but he's doing great." - The Oregonian

  Former Oregon linebacker Adrian Jackson Jr. is looking to continue his career elsewhere. Jackson announced he's in the transfer portal on Thursday, a week after he was removed from UO's roster. A situational pass rusher for much of his career, Jackson is entering his fifth-year redshirt-junior season. He had 16 tackles, including 2.5 for loss, in 2021. A right foot injury kept him out for all of 2019, then a left foot injury ended his 2020 season after four games, when he had four tackles with a sack. As a true freshman, Jackson had 13 tackles with one for loss. - The Oregonian

  Last season, Byron Cardwell entered fall camp third or fourth on the Ducks' depth chart. A year later, he will likely be Oregon's starting running back after showing a lot of potential in limited snaps in 2021. Once CJ Verdell was lost for the 2021 season due to a lower leg injury, Cardwell began to receive more playing time. On 61 carries, he rushed for 417 yards and three touchdowns while averaging 6.8 yards per attempt.

Against Colorado last year, Cardwell recorded his first 100-yard game after going for 127 yards and a score on only seven carries. He was also named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week in November after rushing nine times for 98 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Washington State. Two weeks ago, Cardwell was named to the 2022 preseason watch list for the Doak Walker Award, which is presented annually to the nation's top college running back. He was one of 10 Pac-12 running backs on the preseason watch list. Oregon will likely use multiple running backs, such as Noah Whittington and Mar'Keise Irving, but Cardwell has the potential to be one of the nation's top running backs. - Register Guard

  Wide receiver Dont'e Thornton played sparingly last year but saved his best performance for the Alamo Bowl game against Oklahoma. He finished with four catches, 90 yards and a touchdown, including a 66-yard reception. In April's spring game, Thornton continued his strong play, catching three receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Oregon's receiver group is inexperienced outside of UCLA transfer Chase Cota. Because of this, Thornton should get plenty of opportunities to show what he can do in offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham's system. - Register Guard

  The Oregon Ducks who were limited or missed spring practice due to injury are all on track to return to the field during fall camp. Defensive tackles Brandon Dorlus, Popo Aumavae and Keyon Ware-Hudson, tight ends Cam McCormick and Patrick Herbert, and offensive lineman Michael Wooten, were limited to non-contact practice in the spring due to offseason surgeries or because they were recovering from in-season injuries. "I think everybody should be ready to go," Oregon coach Dan Lanning said Friday at Pac-12 media day. Inside linebacker Justin Flowe, safety Daymon David and a few other players were also limited in the spring. The front seven of Oregon's defense was stretched thin during the spring because of the various absences, but should be back to full strength when camp opens next week. - The Oregonian
