Oregon has received some more good news for next year's squad, as star defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu will return to the school instead of declaring for the NFL Draft, Will Rubin of 247Sports is reporting.
The junior was second on the team with 78 tackles this season, and had six passes broken up with three interceptions. Last season, he had four interceptions and 16 passes broken up (with six fumbles forced), and was named first-team Pac-12 all-conference for each of those two seasons.
Our own Mocking the Draft had Ekpre-Olomu going twelfth in the upcoming draft, to the Lions, and as the second cornerback selected.
Two of Ekpre-Olomu's underclassman teammates have also announced they will return to the school instead of declaring for the draft, as star quarterback Marcus Mariota and center Hroniss Grasu are foregoing potential high draft picks to take another chance at a Pac-12 (or perhaps national) title.
