Ducks land big-time transfer from Houston DL Ja’Maree Caldwell

The hits keep coming for the Oregon Ducks, who landed another transfer portal addition. The latest is the commitment from former Houston Cougar Ja’Maree Caldwell.

Caldwell is a 6-foot-1, 325-pound defensive lineman who will provide a big body for the Ducks for a position group that was definitely in need of more depth this offseason.

Caldwell played two seasons at Houston, where he racked up 39 total tackles, 29 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks and 1 forced fumble. He was rated a four-star player in the transfer portal, and the No. 17 player available this offseason. 247Sports had him as the No. 2 defensive lineman in the portal, behind only Walter Nolen, who committed to Ole Miss.
