Spring football is in full swing and the updates continued Saturday with Offensive Line Coach Alex Mirabal, who's entering his fourth year on the Oregon coaching staff.
The Oregon Ducks return the entire starting offensive line from a season ago, after breaking in an entirely new unit following the 2019 season. George Moore, TJ Bass, Alex Forsyth, Ryan Walk, and Steven Jones all return with a full, albeit, shortened season under their belts.
The team also welcomed an elite group of freshmen from the program's historic 2021 recruiting class, all of which is on already on campus and practicing. Mirabal provided an update on where those players are playing in Joe Moorhead's offense.
Kingsley Suamataia (5-star): Left tackle, second on depth chart behind senior George Moore
Bram Walden (4-star): Right Tackle
Jackson Light (4-star): Center
Jonah Miller (3-star): Left Tackle
Mirabal also noted that he believes the pandemic affected his group particularly due to the hands-on nature that comes with the position. The format of individual position drills and teaching technique changed greatly during the height of the pandemic and the coach added "It's nice to have more of a traditional offseason."
