Bio

The Oregon Ducks got a gift for 2014 when Ekpre-Olomu, an All-American cornerback and likely first-round draft choice, decided to return to Oregon for another season. Arguably the Pac-12’s best cover cornerback, Ekpre-Olomu has a nose for the ball and an ability to slice off a large section of the field and make it impassable for opposing passing games. Oregon lost its three other starters in the secondary, so his return for 2014 has taken on bigger impact. He’ll be one of the leaders of this defense – and the team.

High School

Ekpre-Olomu arrived at Oregon as a four-star recruit and the No. 17 ranked cornerback in the nation after a stellar career at Chino Hills High in Chino, Calif.  Offensively, he rushed for 797 yards and eight touchdowns and caught another 30 passes as a senior. Was named an all-state first-teamer his final season.

College

Appeared in all 14 games as a true freshman in 2011, collecting 34 tackles along the way. In 2012, he started all 13 games and was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection as well as a third-team All-American. Was second in the country in forced fumbles with six and recorded 20 passes defensed. In 2013, he was again a Pac-12 first-teamer after starting all 13 games and recording 84 total tackles while snagging three interceptions.
