Former Oregon WR commit Stephon Johnson enters transfer portal

An interesting name popped up in the transfer portal this week, and it seems to be flying relatively under the radar in Oregon circles, though the player in question has close ties to the Ducks.

Oklahoma State wide receiver Stephon Johnson announced on Wednesday that he would be transferring from the Cowboys and looking for a new school. This is notable for Duck fans became Johnson was previously committed to Oregon before watching Mario Cristobal leave for Miami, which led the former 3-star WR to open up his recruitment once again.

It was a previous coaching staff that recruited Johnson to Eugene, of course, but the Ducks still have a need for some depth and proven ability at the WR position. Johnson had an impressive true-freshman season with Oklahoma State, catching 17 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns. We know that he likes the Ducks enough to commit there once, so might he take a look at them again this time around?

We will have to wait and see, but the first step is making sure that Dan Lanning and the Ducks even have an interest in getting him out of the portal.
