Wallace to Transfer

Wallace will leave Oregon after playing in 15 games.

Oregon sophomore linebacker Anthony Wallace has decided to leave Oregon and play the rest of his college football elsewhere the school announced Friday afternoon.

Wallace was a four-star recruit out of the 2010 recruiting class from Skyline high school in Texas. Wallace picked Oregon over offers from Arizona, Florida, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, and USC.

Here is the full press release:

University of Oregon linebacker Anthony Wallace has informed Chip Kelly of his intentions to transfer from the school’s football program, according the Ducks’ head coach.

The Dallas, Texas, sophomore had played in 15 games in his first two years in the program, accumulating one tackle for loss among his 13 tackles. The former Skyline High School standout was credited with one stop in last year’s Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin while finishing with Oregon single-game bests of three takedowns as a true freshman vs. USC and this year against Colorado.

“We wish Anthony the best in his future endeavors and will attempt to assist him wherever he decides to pursue his education and football career,” Kelly said.

The 6-0, 235-pound Wallace will have three years to complete his two seasons of eligibility.
