(AP) -- The speedy Oregon Ducks just keep landing talented running backs.
Last year it was homegrown star Thomas Tyner. This year it's Royce Freeman out of Imperial, Calif., who also had offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, and Stanford, but on Wednesday signed his letter of intent to play for Oregon.
Freeman ran for 2,824 yards and 41 touchdowns as a senior last season at Imperial High School. Freeman, who is 6-feet and 227 pounds, has drawn comparisons to former Ducks LeGarrette Blount and Jonathan Stewart.
(AP) . . . Peyton Manning is more productive than he's ever been, and whether he's deciphering defenses at the line of scrimmage on game day or on his iPad during the week, his love for the game hasn't waned. More.
