Oregon's spring game will kick off at 11 a.m., Saturday at Autzen Stadium ending a five-week run of spring drills that gave the team a jump start on preparing for the 2014 season. Leading up to the game we'll countdown the Top 10 storylines to watch for on Saturday.
No. 6: Linebacker Torrodney Prevot.
The sophomore made great strides during April's practices, according to defensive coordinator Don Pellum, and could be set for a breakthrough season in 2014.
“Torrodney has been fabulous this spring,” Pellum said. “He’s a very smart player…now, because he understands (the game) a little more you can see him take off and play.”
The 2013 four-star recruit from Texas saw limited action last season and produced 14 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks, two passes defended, a quarterback hurry, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Prevot might do all of that in one game next season provided he takes over for Boseko Lokombo at the outside linebacker position.
Arguably the most athletic linebacker on the team, Prevot could be a terror on the field this Saturday and give fans a preview of things to come next fall.
