On Thursday, reports surfaced that quarterback Jeff Lockie (Danville, Calif./Monte Vista) had made his college choice. The confusing part was that one report had the signal-caller headed to Oregon while another had him bound for San Diego State.

"I'm going to Oregon," Lockie said. "I actually committed Wednesday night. Coach [Mark] Helfrich offered me in the afternoon, and then after talking things over with my coaches and family, I decided I was ready to do this. I called up Coach Helfrich and also talked with Coach [Chip] Kelly and said I was ready to be a Duck.
