Oregon fans beside themselves with the loss of Marcus Mariota as an early NFL entry might have found a way to console their pain with the announcement of Matthew Mariota joining the team in 2015.

Matthew Mariota is the younger brother of the Ducks’ all-time great quarterback. Matthew, 6’3”, 230 pounds, is an outside linebacker at St. Louis High School in Honolulu, the same proving grounds Marcus tore up before becoming a college football legend.

The Oregon legacy will reportedly join the team as a preferred walk-on.
