Brandon Dorlus isn’t done as a Duck.

The 6-foot-3 defensive lineman who enjoyed a career season working in Dan Lanning’s defense has announced his return for a fifth year in Eugene. Dorlus has started 26 of a possible 27 games over the last two seasons, and his return gives Oregon one of the more proven playmakers along the front in the league.

“We ain’t done yet,” Dorlus said.

The Fort Lauderdale native had career numbers across the board this season — 39 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and 46 total quarterback pressures. Dorlus had the sixth-most pressures of any Pac-12 player and earned a top-15 overall defensive grade from Pro Football Focus (among defensive linemen).

Reserve defensive linemen Mase Funa and Taki Taimani have each announced their returns for 2023, and Oregon is still awaiting word from Casey Rogers. Popo Aumavae will also be back. Jordon Riley has exhausted his eligibility, but the Ducks hit the defensive line hard in the 2023 signing class to bolster depth.

Dorlus will once again be a defensive leader as the Ducks look to show defensive improvement in 2023.
