Bryan Bennett to transfer

The off and on again saga of Bryan Bennett continues. A source close to the situation indicates Bennett took a secret visit to Southeastern Louisiana during the weekend.

A second source confirmed the news late Monday morning.

Southeastern Louisiana will start classes Tuesday and Bennett will enroll then.

As DuckTerritory indicated just a short time ago, Bennett decided to stay at Oregon and make a move to the defensive side of the ball, namely outside linebacker.

However consistent pressure forced Bennett to evaluate his options and has led him to enroll immediately (as soon as this week) at Southeastern Louisiana.

Bennett was a quality backup to Marcus Mariota after losing the job this Fall. Mariota is the clear leader of the team with Spring Ball set to approach.

Although the decision for Bennett was considered difficult to make, he will be offered immediately playing time and a clear path to the starting quarterback position.

Oregon is now left with two redshirt freshman on the quarterback depth chart following the departure of Bennett.

The Ducks are currently recruiting junior college quarterback Tanner McEvoy who would provide immediate depth if he commits to Oregon.
