Here’s a look at their individual Oregon careers:


Waters was rated a four-star prospect coming out of high school and the consensus No. 9 ranked wide receiver in the state of California. 

The 6’3”, 187-pound wide receiver chose Oregon over Arizona State, Michigan, Nebraska, Utah and Washington State among others. 

After utilizing a redshirt season in 2019 due to an injury that required surgery, Waters moved from receiver to corner and saw time in two games last season during the Pac-12 and Oregon’s shortened seven-game season. He finished with one solo tackles against the Cal Golden Bears.


Townsend was a consensus three-star prospect from the state of Colorado coming out of Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colorado. He chose Oregon over Boise State, Iowa State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington State among others. 

The 6’5”, 257-pound defensive end utilized a redshirt season in 2019 and didn’t see any game time in 2020.
