This offseason has seen Oregon lose two reserve quarterbacks to transfers. With today’s development, that net loss at the position has been cut in half.
In a tweet posted to his Twitter account, Ty Griffin announced that he is officially transferring into the Ducks football program. Griffin will have to sit out the 2014 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015.
Griffin served as a backup to the backup in his lone season at Georgia Tech. He was a two-star member of the Yellow Jackets’ 2013 class coming out of high school in Georgia.
Griffin also happens to be the older brother of Taj Griffin, a four-star 2015 recruit rated by Rivals.com as the No. 1 all-purpose running back in the country. Coincidentally or not, the younger Griffin verbally committed to the Ducks in April.
