The Oregon Ducks received another Christmas gift … just one day later. Quarterback Justin Herbert has decided to return to school for his senior season.

He turned down an opportunity to be the first quarterback drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft. Herbert was considered a Top 5 pick before making his decision to return to Eugene, Oregon for one last dance.

“The University of Oregon has been a special place to me for as long as I can remember,” Herbert said. “Words will never be able to express my feelings of gratitude toward the people that have built and maintain our program. What I have come to realize, though, is that nothing could pull me away from the opportunities that we have in front of us.

“As we prepare for our bowl game, I would like to ensure that there are no distractions outside of this game. My commitment to my teammates, our coaches, Ducks fans, and the University of Oregon has never been stronger. I’ll be returning to the University of Oregon for my senior year. Go Ducks!”

Herbert has gone 221 of 371 for 2,985 yards in 12 games. He has 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

His best game of the season came against the Stanford Cardinal in a loss on September 22nd. Herbert went 26 of 33 for 346 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

He had a season-high five touchdowns against the Bowling Green Falcons on September 1st.
