Oregon Football Wide Receiver Traeshon Holden was a key to the Ducks offense last season.

His connection with Bo Nix was well documented, but with Nix how headed to the NFL, Holden is ready to cast his own shadow with a new signal caller getting him the ball in 2024.

As far as what Holden has been working on in the offseason, “Getting to my top speed faster. That was probably my main focus on the offseason.”

Holden is now the leader in the wide receiver room with the departure of Troy Franklin and looks to embrace the role for the upcoming season.

“Our receiver room loaded for sure. We have the best receiver room in the country. I’m going to come out there and be the same every day. Our whole room is like family,” Holden said.

Last season Holden was solid on offense finishing the season with 37 receptions and 6 touchdowns including some key plays down the stretch for the Ducks, He finished the season with just over 600 yards of offense and 6 touchdowns.  

I expect Holden to put up some numbers in the spring game in a few weeks, “Troy [Franklin] being gone is just next person and I feel like I’m the next person.”

Oregon enters the season with a lot of talent in the wide receiver room. Holden, along with Gary Bryant Jr., and Tez Johnson lead the experienced side of the Ducks.

The Oregon Spring Game is set for Saturday, April 27th inside Autzen Stadium at 1 pm Pacific Time.
