Will Econ grad Dakota Prukop take a class at Oregon from Bill Harbaugh? Issues … – OregonLive.com
Unlike some grad transfers, quarterback Dakota Prukop appears to be a serious student.
In case you missed it, Prukop announced yesterday he would transfer from Montana State to Oregon for his senior season.
He told The O’s Andrew Greif he picked the Ducks instead of Alabama because of the connection and trust he established with UO coach Mark Helfrich and receivers coach Matt Lubick, the presumptive offensive coordinator.
Prukop leaves Montana State with an undergraduate degree in economics, which is not your typical jock major.
He told FoxSports.com’s Bruce Feldman he hopes to enroll in a UO master’s program in January.
If Prukop continues his studies in economics, do you think he will take classes from econ professor Bill Harbaugh?
If so, that could be interesting. Harbaugh is a frequent critic of the UO athletic department. He writes an entertaining blog titled “UO Matters,” which tweaks the university’s administration on a variety of topics.
