A receiver with 4.24 speed. The next Dennis Dixon. Scout.com's top-rated big man from the 2012 class. On April 28, Oregon fans will be seeing their first real dose of several future superstars when their Ducks take the field for the spring game.
Year after year, Ducks fans have been impressed by young talent, as Chip Kelly is not afraid to plug his young studs into the lineup. We've seen this recently with players like De'Anthony Thomas, Josh Huff and Colt Lyerla, who have all impressed as freshmen.
Oregon lacks experience at several different positions, including wide receiver, quarterback and defensive back. Therefore, the Ducks faithful can count on seeing plenty of new faces in the starting lineup in 2012.
With that being said, the spring game is a great time to get an idea of what to expect from these future stars. The following 10 players will likely impress with increased playing time in 2012.
Some are new freshmen looking to make an instant impact. Others are sophomores and juniors that have been waiting a long time to prove what they can do.
Either way, these players are future studs whose names we should remember.
