As the Oregon Basketball team prepares for BYU in a few hours there is news from Oregon Football. There seems to always be a logjam at one position or another with a top notch program and that may or may not be the case with a decision that was made by a Wide Receiver on Thursday Morning. ESPN is reporting that Senior Wideout Eric Dungy has decided to transfer from Oregon and play his final season in the East Coast for the University of South Florida.

He is scheduled to graduate in time and in four years with the Ducks which will allow him to play his final season in a different place. Dungy, who is the son of former Buccaneers and Colts Coach Tony Dungy played mostly as a reserve in his time with the Ducks. For his career in Eugene he played in twenty games with two starts in 2012. He pulled in seven receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown for the Ducks.

One position that Oregon is not short of on talent going into 2014 is Wide Receiver. The Ducks have several key returners from last year including Bralon Addison as well as Dwayne Stanford, Keanon Lowe and Chance Allen. Several newcombers will also likely be in the mix from the 2014 recruiting class in Jalen Brown and Charles Nelson.
