Suspended Linebacker Torrodney Prevot Seeks Transfer


Torrodney Prevot announced on Twitter that he was leaving the Oregon Football team.

The Oregon Ducks and Willie Taggart are offering scholarships like they are going out of style, while at the same time several commits to the program have decided the new leadership was not for them.

On Tuesday, suspended Linebacker Torrodney Prevot announced he was leaving the Oregon Football team and will play his final season elsewhere. However, a report from the Eugene Daily Emerald says he cannot transfer. The initial suspension, set by Mark Helfrich, was for two seasons.

Prevot was suspended for the 2016 season after an alleged assault toward a female athlete. He was under investigation by University Police and suspended by then Head Coach Mark Helfrich. Now, it appears he is looking for a clean slate and a fresh start.

Torrodney Prevot will use the Graduate Transfer rule and be eligible to play immediately, but first he needs an offer to accept. He had a promising career at Oregon in his three seasons with Oregon Football.

In his first two seasons, Prevot had a combined 44 tackles. He saw a career-high  48 tackles helping the Oregon Ducks get to the National Championship Game in 2015. Following the season, he changed Defensive positions in anticipation of the 4-3 scheme last Spring.
