How former Oregon high school players are faring in Division 1 college football

Last week we posted a list of the nearly 100 athletes we found on Division I FBS college football rosters in 2020.

This week and throughout this strange, coronavirus-altered college football season, we’ll focus on the former Oregon high school football players logging stats at the Division I FBS level this season.

Most of the Division 1 college football players from Oregon high schools play in the Pac-12, which starts Nov. 6-7. But the Mountain West started last weekend, and Nevada’s Cole Turner had a huge game in the Wolf Pack’s debut.

The Clackamas alum had seven catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns in his first game playing tight end as Nevada beat Wyoming 37-34 in overtime Saturday.
