Quarterback Marcus Mariota has announced that he will return to Oregon for his junior season.
There had been speculation that Mariota might declare himself eligible for the NFL. After Oregon's 36-35 victory over Oregon State on Friday, he said he hadn't yet made a decision.
But on Tuesday, the school announced on its website that Mariota would stay, along with junior Hroniss Grasu, a three-year starter at center.
Mariota has passed for 30 touchdowns this season for the Ducks, who finished the regular season 10-2.
Widely considered a top Heisman Trophy candidate this season, Mariota was hampered by what appeared to be a left knee injury the last five games of the season.
Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The center fielder was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday that he must pass before the deal can be finalized, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.
Ellsbury's deal includes a $21 million option for the 2021 season, with a $5 million buyout. If the option is exercised, the deal would be worth $169 million over eight years.
Earlier Tuesday, New York finalized an $85 million, five-year contract with All-Star catcher Brian McCann.
