The Oregon Ducks have the opportunity to play another 4 years with a Mariota:  Matthew Mariota will fill in for his brother Marcus on the Ducks roster for the 2015-2016 season.

Matthew, a 6-foot-3, 230 pound defensive lineman announced to Hawaii’s KHON2 reporters that he will walk on with the University of Oregon Ducks this coming fall.

The Ducks are hopeful for the new recruit, who played both outside linebacker and defensive line for St. Louis High School in his hometown of Honolulu, where he earned an honorable mention from the Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH).

The two brothers will not have any field-time together, as Marcus plans to forgo his senior season with the Ducks to instead enter the 2015 NFL Draft which takes place in Indianapolis late February.
