The most recent graduate of a Colorado high school to play for Oregon’s football team was Evan Baylis, a Grandview grad, from 2012-16. Baylis is currently on the roster of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.
2018 Mullen graduate Adrian Jackson is set to join Oregon’s program in the fall.
Last season for the Mustangs, Townsend had 65 tackles, including 15 for a loss, as well as six sacks. He also plays basketball for Ralston Valley, and averaged 9.0 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season as a forward.
A three-star prospect according to Rivals and 247sports.com, Townsend also had offers from Boise State, Iowa State, Kansas State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Washington State and Wyoming.
