One of Oregon’s greatest snags from the 2024 transfer portal was five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart. Transferring from Texas A&M, Stewart was seen at spring practice with the Ducks for the first time on Tuesday.

Stewart was also a five-star prospect coming out of high school with a 99 overall rating. Now, the wideout has an overall rating of 98 and was the No. 2 receiver in the class.

For the Aggies, Stewart had 91 receptions for 1,163 yards and 6 touchdowns. He averaged 12.9 yards per catch over two seasons in College Station.

Backup forward Brennan Rigsby announced that he entered the transfer portal and will be leaving the Oregon Ducks.

Throughout two seasons under head coach Dana Altman, Rigsby struggled to find a consistent shot from the field.

Rigsby started his career at Northwest Florida State College, where he led his team to a NJCAA national championship.

Bronny James entered the transfer portal on Tuesday after playing his freshman season with the USC Trojans. When James was still in high school, Altman and the Ducks recruited him pretty heavily in hopes of bringing a nationally recognized talent to Eugene.

James, obviously, didn’t choose Oregon as his next landing spot but maybe the Ducks can be luckier the second time around.

Oregon was one of James’ final schools before he announced that he was staying in Southern California. That, combined with the Ducks’ incredible postseason run this year may just be the winning recipe Altman and his staff need to bring Lebron James Jr. to the Pacific Northwest.

The Hawkeyes and Huskies will be joining the South Carolina Gamecocks and NC State Wolfpack in Cleveland for a chance at the national championship game.

NC State is the biggest surprise team remaining in the field while South Carolina was as close to a sure best as one can get. Iowa being led by Caitlin Clark and UConn being led by Paige Bueckers didn’t leave much room for surprise either.
