After Oregon’s second scrimmage of fall camp, head coach Dan Lanning shouted out the play of freshman wideout Kyler Kasper.

Kasper’s teammate, Troy Franklin, went one more on Tuesday. The second-year receiver said Kasper got the Ducks their first offensive score in the scrimmage, and has flashed quite a bit in fall camp.

“Kyler’s really a good deep-threat guy,” Franklin said of the 6-foot-6 youngster. “He’s big so he can make those crazy catches. He’s long. He’s also strong, too. He can get off press and things like that. He’s going to do (well).”

Franklin said he, Chase Cota, and Kasper are primarily working at the X receiver position in camp. A 4-star recruit and a top-200 prospect, Kasper was initially expected to join the program next season. Instead, he reclassified to the 2022 class and is now looking to provide some immediate depth to a young room.

Maybe he can play a role in 2022. Certainly, though, his background has helped him make the jump to college ball a little early.

“When you get to know these kids, you get to know their background, their mom, dads, the siblings, their home, and he comes from a good background,” said wideout coach Junior Adams. “His dad played NFL football and his upbringing. I knew that when he got up here, that he wouldn’t flinch, and he hasn’t flinched since.”

Less than two weeks to go before the new season starts, Adams is still sorting through his rotation.

“It’s a good group. It’s a deep group,” he said. “The cool thing is all these guys, they get along. They’re tight. They’re a close-knit group and they make each other better. I don’t have an exact number right now.”
