It appears that the Oregon Ducks are looking to make an early splash in the transfer portal.
On Thursday night, it became clear that Traeshon Holden, a former Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver who is looking for a new team, is in Eugene for a visit. Holden, one of the top-ranked WRs in the portal this year, is high on our list of potential targets for the Ducks.
As a former 4-star recruit who was rated as the No. 187 player in the 2020 class, Holden has 46 catches for 670 yards and 7 touchdowns. Holden had a breakout season in 2022 with 6 TD’s for the Crimson Tide, making it relatively surprising that he chose to enter the portal.
After losing both Dont’e Thornton and Seven McGee to the portal this year, plus the departure of Chase Cota, the Ducks have a need for more bodies at the WR position. If they were able to get Holden to commit to the Ducks, it would be a massive win for Dan Lanning and his new offensive coordinator, Will Stein.
