Special Teams Overhaul


Staff member
Oregon has landed three specialists in less than a week after former Cincinnati kicker Alex Bales committed to Oregon on Friday. Bales was a kickoff specialist who spent three years with the Bearcats and logged 43 touchbacks in 2021.

The Ducks also recently landed commitments from former Temple punter Adam Barry and JUCO punter Ross James. Punter Will Hutchinson and Henry Kattleman are the main specialists names that have hit the transfer portal this offseason, but veteran punter Tom Snee has been away from the program, according to Dan Lanning following the spring game.

What do you think of how Joe Lorig and Dan Lanning have overhauled the special teams unit this offseason?

Change is unsettling. Oregon has had questionable special teams for years. But I always assumed it was more about the lack of focus by the previous coaching staffs - and not the players. We will see.
