Report: Ducks are pursuing former Michigan DB Keon Sabb in transfer portal

The Oregon Ducks have been incredibly active in the transfer portal this year, and after adding the likes of Jabbar Muhammad, Kobe Savage, Kam Alexander, and Brandon Johnson, they appear to be set when it comes to talent in the secondary going into the 2024 season.

That doesn’t mean that they don’t want to continue to improve, though.

A relatively surprising name entered the portal earlier this week when Michigan Wolverines safety Keon Sabb announced that he was looking to transfer. Now it’s being reported by On3’s Hayes Fawcett that the Ducks are one of many teams who have reached out to Sabb since he became available.

Sabb was a major part of the Wolverine’s championship team this year, with 28 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 1 touchdown on the year. In the national championship game against the Washington Huskies, Sabb had 6 tackles and 2 PBU’s.

According to 247Sports, Sabb is rated as the 54th-best player in the transfer portal this year, and the fourth-best safety. That stacks up well when you compare it to the safeties that Oregon has already added: Savage (No. 13 S in 2024 portal), and Brandon Johnson (No. 28 S in 2024 portal).

We will see if the Ducks are able to add Sabb, who would be a cherry on top of the already impressive transfer portal haul that Oregon’s been able to bring in this offseason.
