Adams headed to Oregon

Oregon has added another name to the quarterback competition in the fall as Vernon Adams tweets he's transferring to Oregon

Vernon Adams Jr. will transfer to Oregon.

The Eastern Washington quarterback announced on Twitter on Monday that he will play his final year of college football in Eugene. After the departure of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota to the NFL, Oregon pursued Adams as a transfer option and had him take an official visit on the final weekend before National Signing Day 2015.

Adams still has to finish up his degree before he can transfer in order to play right away next season. In his junior campaign, Adams threw for 3,483 yards and 35 touchdowns in 10 games. He also recorded a career high 66 percent completion rate, tossing only eight interceptions. Over a three year career, he's thrown for over 10,400 yards in an Eastern Washington uniform and rushed for over 1,200 yards.

Adams has had success against Pac-12 programs in the past. Two years ago, he led an upset of Oregon State by accounting for six offensive touchdowns in Corvallis and threw for seven touchdowns against Washington last season in a close loss.
