"I was supposed to go to the game but something happened so I ended up watching it with my family and my friends," Carrington said.
"I saw a lot of things. They did a great job spreading the ball around and Marcus (Mariota) trying to get it out to the receivers. The running game was on point and they looked really good."
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound prospect is especially excited about his future at Oregon because he feels he fits in so well with the offense.
Carrington is an outside receiver who usually has no problems beating cornerbacks deep, plus he can take a short pass and make something happen. That should be a perfect combination when he gets to Eugene.
"It helps a lot because I think I can be something different going up there being the receiver-type," Carrington said. "I feel like maybe Marcus and I will have a good connection once I start practicing with him.
"We run the spread and everything with short, quick routes. We try to get a quick tempo so it's kind of similar to Oregon."
Many other programs continue to recruit Carrington and after some consideration about taking other visits the San Diego Horizon recruit has decided not to look at other schools.
Carrington is set on Oregon and is thrilled about his choice.
"I'm not taking any other visits," Carrington said. "I'm pretty set on Oregon. That's my school and I'm trying to get ready to go there this summer. I might go up to a game with one of my friends but no visits."
Rivals.com rates Carrington as the No. 19 wide receiver and No. 162 prospect in the 2013 class.
