Oregon quarterback Bo Nix has been one of the greatest transfer portal success stories in college football over recent history, going from a signal-caller who had fallen off of the radar after some ups and downs at Auburn to a projected first-round draft pick at Oregon.

A lot has gone into that jump Nix has made, and he elaborated upon that injury a recent interview.

“I really think I have a great command over situational processing and offense,” Nix said.

Nix is comfortable in the system he’s in with the Ducks and seems to have grown in his mental processing ability — something that shows both in the tape and what he says himself.

“Whether it’s two-minute, four-minute, third down, first and second down P&10, whatever situation I’m put in I feel like I’ve got a good grasp for it. There’s a lot of things that I’ve seen based off of experience that has helped put me in that situation. I’ve grown a lot just as far as checking and seeing things and getting into protections and getting into runs and doing some pass things. I’d say that’s where I’ve grown the most from last year to this year, I started the process last year, but I’ve kind of feel that control and awareness of what’s going on. I think that’s helped me as a player.”

Nix will have a chance to keep progressing as one of the top prospects in the nation when the Ducks open up the 2023 schedule against Portland State at noon PT on Sept. 2.

Nix finished out the 2022 season with a 71.9% completion rate, 3,593 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
