Report: Oregon will not pay for QB Marcus Mariota's insurance policy

Insurance premiums have been a popular subject in the past couple months as teams such as Texas A&M, Baylor and Florida State have acknowledged they will use the NCAA's Student Assistance Fund to help pay the premiums of some of their top draft prospects.

But, according to Jeremy Fowler of CBSSports.com, one school with a top draft prospect and a possible Heisman Trophy winner will not be joining this trend — Oregon.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota, who is a viable candidate for the Heisman Trophy and possibly one of the top prospects in the upcoming NFL draft, will not receive money from Oregon to secure an insurance premium that will safeguard his future should he get hurt this season.

However, Mariota has noted in the past that his family has taken out a supplemental insurance policy for this season, but did not disclose how much it was or how much his family paid for the premium.

Many thought Mariota would make the jump to the NFL after last season, but he decided to stay in order to get his degree. Mariota has not disclosed his plans for after this season and, since he can come back to Oregon in 2015, they will probably depend on how his season turns out.
