Redshirt freshman quarterback Damion Hobbs will not return to Oregon this fall and will transfer, according to reports. The Oregon athletic department has not yet confirmed Hobbs’ departure.
Hobbs, Jeff Lockie, Taylor Alie and incoming freshman Morgan Mahalak made up a group of quarterbacks fighting for the backup job behind Marcus Mariota. The group included redshirt sophomore Jake Rodrigues until he announced on Monday he would leave the Ducks and attempt to transfer.
ESPN and Rivals listed Hobbs as a three-star recruit coming out of high school. During his senior season at Cedar Hill (Texas) HS, Hobbs threw for 2,769 yards and 29 touchdowns while rushing for 808 yards and 12 touchdowns.
