Oregon walk-on QB AJ Abbott enters the NCAA Transfer Portal

Oregon walk-on quarterback AJ Abbott has elected to end his career with the Oregon Ducks and play his final four years of college football at a different college program. He announced his decision Sunday morning on Social Media. Abbott will enter the NCAA Transfer Portal on Monday.

“I want to say a genuine thank you to both coaching staffs and the teammates that I have had the pleasure of working with over this past year at the University of Oregon,” Abbott said in his post on Twitter. “Coach Moorhead, Costa, Gilbertson, and Dillingham have been great mentors and I am extremely grateful for their support. That being said I have decided to enter the transfer portal with four years of eligibility remaining.”

Abbott did not play in any games at Oregon and did not record any stats during the 2022 Oregon Spring Game.

Abbott arrived at Oregon as a walk-on quarterback ahead of the 2021 football season after starring at the quarterback position in Houston, Texas at Stratford high school. As a senior, he earned first-team 6A All-District 17 honors as a senior. Threw for 1,906 yards to go with a school-record 24 touchdowns and just three interceptions in 2020. Broke the Stratford HS single-season TD pass mark that was set by Andrew Luck.

Earlier this week the Ducks added walk-on quarterback Jake Van Dyne from Missouri State. Van Dayne will have three years of eligibility remaining when he joins the quarterback room this coming season. Oregon also has scholarship quarterbacks Bo Nix, Jay Butterfieldand Ty Thompson on the roster.
