Oregon scores a graduate transfer for the second straight season in Montana State quarterback Dakota Prukop

This season, Oregon scored success with a graduate transfer quarterback in Vernon Adams. It looks like they'll try to replicate that success in 2016

For the second straight season, Oregon has picked up an FCS graduate transfer.

Fox Sports reporter Bruce Feldman reports that Montana State quarterback Dakota Prukop will attend the University of Oregon for his final season of eligibility, echoing a similar move from current Ducks QB Vernon Adams, who transferred from Eastern Washington back in August. 

Prukop visited Alabama following a visit to Oregon over the weekend. Both visits were successful and he told Oregon Live that his Oregon visit was ‘phenomenal’ and that he had developed a good relationship with head coach Mark Helfrich and wide receivers coach Matt Lubick. 

This season at Montana State, Prukop completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 3,025 yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and ran for 797 yards and 11 more touchdowns. On film he shows a strong arm and the ability to throw a proficient deep ball and also presents some elusiveness with his legs. 

He’ll join a quarterback competition that, as of now, should include Jeff Lockie, Taylor Alie, Morgan Mahalak and Travis Jonsen, along with incoming freshmen Terry Wilson and Justin Herbert.
