Oregon receiver Eric Dungy is exploring the option of transferring for his redshirt senior season this fall.
Dungy, a native of Tampa, Fla., has visited the campus of South Florida, ESPN reported today. He is on track to receive his undergraduate degree this spring, and would be eligible to enroll elsewhere and play immediately under those circumstances.
“We will continue to support Eric in pursuit of his college football dreams," UO coach Mark Helfrich said. "He will always be a member of the University of Oregon family. We wish him well.”
A 2010 redshirt, the son of former NFL coach Tony Dungy has made 19 appearances over the past three seasons, including two starts. Dungy has seven career receptions for 75 yards and one touchdown, against Missouri State in 2011.
Oregon returns two of three starters at wide receiver, Bralon Addison and Keanon Lowe. Though the Ducks lost Josh Huff to graduation, there are several other viables candidates to replace him, including Dwayne Stanford, Chance Allen, Darren Carrington or perhaps even freshman Jalen Brown, who enrolled in January.
