Draft Scout Darren Carrington II News
04/29/17 - Justin Herbert threw for 327 yards and found Darren Carrington for three touchdowns in Oregon's first Spring Game under new coach Willie Taggart on Saturday. The vibe around the annual event was totally different than in past years: Instead of building on previous successes, the Ducks are - almost - starting fresh. There are a few familiar faces, notably Carrington and running back Royce Freeman, but it is clear the Ducks are now Taggart's team. "We definitely got a lot of work to do," Carrington said. "But we're on the upside right now. There's no backsteps, we're only going up." Taggart is taking over an Oregon team that finished 4-8 last season and at the bottom of the Pac-12 North standings at 2-7, snapping a run of nine straight winning seasons in conference play.
Taggart's first spring game featured Team Free, led by Herbert and featuring Carrington and Freeman, against Team Brave, with Travis Jonson and newcomer Braxton Burmeister at quarterback. Team Free won 34-11 before a crowd announced at 36,821. Unlike past seasons under Mark Helfrich and Chip Kelly, when the event was more of a scrimmage based on points, this was more like an actual game - with a running clock in the second half. Herbert, a sophomore, completed 16 of 26 passes for Team Free. He threw for 1,936 yards and 19 touchdowns in eight games as a freshman last season. Carrington finished with four receptions for 116 yards. - AP Sports
11/19/16 - Justin Herbert hit Darren Carrington for a 17-yard touchdown pass with two seconds remaining to give Oregon a 30-28 upset victory over No. 11 Utah on Saturday, putting the Utes' hopes of a Pac-12 championship in jeopardy. Herbert led the Ducks, who have struggled all season and suffered several lopsided losses, on a 10-play, 75-yard drive in just over two minutes, capping it with the TD pass to Carrington. Carrington was initially called out of bounds but that call was reversed after a replay showed he got a foot down inbounds. Herbert finished the game with 324 yards passing and three TDs. He also scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter. The Utes had taken a 28-24 lead with 2:18 remaining off a Troy Williams 30-yard touchdown pass but the Ducks then began their comeback drive. Royce Freeman led the Ducks ground game with 129 yards. He also scored on a one-yard pass from Herbert early in the fourth. - AP Sports
08/22/16 - Oregon wide receiver Darren Carrington left Saturday's practice with an apparent shoulder injury, according to The Oregonian.
The status of the 2015 second-team All-Pac-12 receiver isn't yet known, although he did return to the field with his right arm in a sling after tumbling over a bench.

10/03/15 - The past week has been one the Oregon Ducks would rather forget. They were shellacked by Utah and suffered a 42-point home loss. Then, one of their leading offensive weapons -- wide receiver Byron Marshall -- underwent surgery and will likely be lost for the season. And the Ducks -- who in January played for the national championship -- fell out of the Top 25. Now comes word that one of last season's most dynamic offensive threats is in hot water, still. Wide receiver Darren Carrington, who was suspended for the College Football Playoff championship game against Ohio State as well as the first five games this season, recently was cited by Eugene, Ore., police for having an open alcohol container.
The issue could further complicate Carrington's path to getting back on the field. Carrington trailed only Marshall last season as the Ducks' No. 2 receiver. He caught 14 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games in 2014 -- the Pac-12 title game against Arizona and the playoff semifinal win over Florida State. According to The Oregonian in Portland, police cited Carrington on Sept. 26 after "officers on 'party patrol'" spotted him in an alley at 2:34 a.m. with a cup that appeared to contain alcohol. - The Sports Xchange
