Matthew Mariota, little brother of former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, will walk-on with the Ducks next season, according to a source close to the situation. 

Rob DeMello of KHON2 in Hawaii tweeted earlier this evening that Matthew Maritoa, a senior defensive end/linebacker out of Saint Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii, would be attending Oregon.

A source confirmed to CSNNW.com that Matthew Mariota will join the team in the summer as a "preferred walk-on." 

Matthew Mariota is listed at 6-foot-3, 230-pounds. He will begin his career at Oregon as a linebacker.

Matt Mariota missed being a teammate of his brother by one year. 

Marcus Mariota, who received the Heisman Trophy in December, elected to forgo his final year at Oregon and enter the NFL Draft.

He is expected to be a first-round pick.
