Marcus Harper's versatility has always been his calling card. His positional flexibility is, at least partially, what made him such a valuable player for Oregon last season and enabled him to take hold of the Ducks' starting left guard spot. As Oregon looks for a new starting center to fill the shoes of All-American Alex Forsyth, Harper's ability to excel at multiple positions along the offensive front could be key for the Ducks once again. Throughout the program's first four spring practices, Harper has been repping at center and is very much in the mix to start there in 2023.
