Oregon junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu reiterated Monday morning that he will return for his final season with the Ducks.
Some media outlets reported Ifo's heart was in Eugene, and the decision backs that up. With Oregon returning Marcus Mariota on offense and Ifo on defense, the team sustains a high level of talent on both sides of the ball. Some players have likely had a different response to mark Helfrich's coaching compared to Chip Kelly's, but these two top prospects point to sustained success. Jan 6 - 1:47 PM

The Oregon football staff is "pretty confident" that junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu will stay in school rather than opt for the NFL, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Ifo's running mate, Terrance Mitchell, has already declared for the draft. Other reports state Ifo's "heart is in Eugene," but turning pro would obviously help him and his family financially. The junior is a physical corner on the edge in terms of run defense and shows solid movement skills.

Oregon junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu refutes a report stating he intends to stay at the school for another season.

This does not mean Ifo is declaring for the draft, rather he has yet to make a decision at this time. We were surprised by the initial report that the corner planned on staying in school for another year. He can certainly improve, but Ifo is a very talented prospect and could be a first-round selection. Expect to hear more after the school's bowl game against Texas.

Oregon junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is expected to bypass the NFL draft and return to campus next season.

He isn't leaving as much money on the table as Marcus Mariota, but Ekpre-Olomu is a very good prospect in his own right. Heading into the Alamo Bowl against Texas, he has collected 78 tackles, six passes broken up and three interceptions this season. Ekpre-Olomu was projected by most as a top-three cornerback and a first-round pick in May's draft.

Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian said Oregon junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu "probably the best defensive player we've seen this season."

The Huskies haven't seen many defenses with top talent this season other than Stanford, but Ekpre-Olomu is a very good prospect. His game speaks for itself, as the junior is rarely targeting and shuts down many opposing receivers. He's one of the best prospects at his position in the country.

Oregon junior CB Ifo Expre-Olomu has registered 11 tackles thus far this season.

The Ducks haven't been tested, giving up a total of 13 points in two contests, but expect to hear Ekpre-Olomu's name more often as Oregon faces off against better competition. He should line up opposite Colorado receiver Paul Richardson on October 5.
