Holland, James on Track
Tuesday, January 13, 7:30 a.m. PT
Junior-to-be Jamere Holland and redshirt freshman LaMichael James have been added to the Oregon track and field roster for the upcoming indoor and outdoor seasons.
Jamere Holland reels in a 47-yard pass from Jeremiah Masoli on Oregon's first offensive play of the Holiday Bowl.
Holland, a wide receiver who saw action in seven games this past football season, is no stranger to the track, having run for USC in 2007 before transferring to Oregon. As a high school senior, he ran the nation's third fastest prep time in the 100 (10.36). He'll run sprints and relays for the Ducks
James will look to show off his tailback speed in sprints and relays as well, but he'll have to wait until the outdoor season while rehabbing a recent shoulder surgery. As for football, James will be held out of all contact for spring drills, but is expected to be fully recovered by the start of summer workouts.
JOHNSON TO HAVE SURGERY
Marvin Johnson, a junior-to-be, is scheduled to have his knee scoped on Friday. The rover and special teams stalwart faces a 6 to 8 week recovery and should be cleared for full contact prior to the start of spring ball.
Outside of James, only Drew Davis (ACL rehab) and Nate Costa (ACL rehab) are currently slated to have their participation in spring practices limited. Costa, Oregon's No. 1 quarterback during fall camp last season will be more than six months removed from surgery when workouts commence March 30 and will likely seek the medical staff's clearance to return to full-go status for the spring.
