Oregon waits as QB Adams takes final class for eligibility

Aug 14, 2015 12:51 AM by Ross Field

Quarterback Vernon Adams passed the math class he needed to graduate from Eastern Washington and join the Oregon Ducks.

Adams took the final test Thursday. After hours of speculation over his status, he posted to Twitter: "Thank God." He accompanied the post with a photo of himself in his cap and gown holding his son.

The star quarterback needed to complete his coursework - specifically, a final math class - to transfer from Eastern Washington. NCAA rules allow players who have graduated to transfer to another school without having to sit out a season.

An FCS All-American, Adams is vying to replace Marcus Mariota as Oregon's starter.
