A 3-star transfer from Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Calif., Dominique Harrison should add depth to the Ducks secondary.
Defensive back play has been a consistently strong area for the Ducks in recent years, and Harrison can be the latest in the line of playmakers to thrive in that secondary.
Helfrich told the Daily Emerald Harrison made a very quick impression on some noteworthy teammates.
"[Harrison is] a guy that has already made guys like [quarterback] Marcus [Mariota] come up to us and say, ‘Wait ’til you see this guy,’” Helfrich said.
With the early departure of cornerback Terrance Mitchell to the NFL draft, Oregon has a competition ahead in the offseason. The Ducks returns two veteran cornerbacks in Troy Hill and Dior Mathis, both of whom should compete for the vacated spot.
Harrison may not win that starting job, but expect him to work into the defensive back rotation and play a role similar to that of Mathis last season.
