Oregon QB Justin Herbert has a lot of hype to live up to

Oregon QB Justin Herbert has a lot of hype to live up to

Justin Herbert is growing up before our eyes. He's maturing, coming out of his shell. Physically, he is considerably larger than the rail thinA freshman that flashed elite skills in 2016. He's becoming so comfortable as a leader and a young man that he has the guts to wear his new hairdo - half surfer dude,A half mad scientist - with the full confidence that he can pull it off.

All of the above, along with his immense skills and minus the hair, have led to the juniorA entering this season as a potentialA Heisman Trophy candidate and a virtual lock to become a future first-round NFL Draft pick as soon as next spring. Herbert already should be considered one of the top 10A most talented quarterbacks to ever play at Oregon.A 

But let's step back for a second and ask one simple question: What has Herbert truly accomplishedA at Oregon?A 

The truthful answer is: Not much at all.

We know Herbert can put up big passing numbers (he became the fastest UO quarterback to reach 3,000 yards passing, doing so in 13 games) and look flashy doing so. What we don't know is if he is a championship-caliber quarterback capable of leading his team to close victoriesA in big games against high-end competition.
