Duck fans received some good news Monday afternoon.
Three-year starting nose tackle Jordon Scott has decided to return to school for his senior season, passing up an opportunity to go to the NFL.
He later told us again how he felt on his twitter.

Scott, along with three other Ducks, tested the draft waters ahead of the Rose Bowl before declaring to return to school. They all announced on Monday they are returning to school.
The junior has started since his true freshman season clogging up running lanes on nearly every play. He may only have three career sacks, but he almost always demands a double team leaving his teammates single covered. Scott had 32 tackles last season including 14 solo tackles.
Oregon fans can anticipate him making plays like this in Autzen Stadium next season.

All 11 Oregon defenders crash down on the line but Jordon Scott pushed the center back by a yard a millisecond after the snap. Might be the play of the game IMO. pic.twitter.com/UN2sWFxgpk
Scott has graduated from the University of Oregon already so he will be taking graduate classes more than likely.
After a rough 13hr shift, coming home to this made me forget everything that happened!!!! @Fat_Mac34 words cannot express how proud I am of you!!! I can’t believe I officially have a #CollegeGraduate!! #YouDontKnowOurStory #NobobyButGod 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 pic.twitter.com/YiuQClsTLa— Kim (@fatmacsmom) January 9, 2020
He'll anchor an Oregon defense that was 21st in the nation in total defense, as well as the conference leader in sacks and tackles-for-loss.
