BREAKING: Coveted FCS QB transfer spurns Alabama for Oregon
He has been classified as the next “Vernon Adams,” the next great FCS quarterback to make the jump up to FBS. Dakota Prukop is that guy, and he has decided which school will get his services next season.
The Montana State quarterback transfer has chosen to enroll at Oregon, Prukop told SEC Country.
Prukop threw for 3,025 yards and 28 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 797 yards and 11 touchdowns while at Montana State.
“Dakota was a dominant player at the FCS level, there was nothing he couldn’t do on the field and that which he needed work on was corrected in the offseason with his work ethic,” Montana State offensive coordinator Tim Cramsey told SEC Country. “That work ethic and competitiveness is what will make him successful in whatever decision he decides to make.”
The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder made last-minute official visits to both schools over the weekend. He told SEC Country that “both programs have some amazing facilities.”
He will be eligible to play immediately due to NCAA graduate transfer rules.
If Prukop did decide to enroll at Alabama, the Crimson Tide would have six quarterbacks on the roster. Senior Alec Morris, junior Cooper Bateman, sophomore David Cornwell, redshirt freshman Blake Barnett and true freshman Jalen Hurts would all be in Tuscaloosa, Ala. battling it out for the starting role.
