The Oregon Ducks football program took a shot on Wednesday as redshirt freshman Tacoi Sumler has apparently decided to transfer before ever stepping on the field for the squad.
Tacoi Sumler was thought to be the fastest high school football recruit in the country when the Oregon Ducks brought him on last season. He's now prepped himself to be one of the fastest transfers in the country, however, as reports indicate the redshirt freshman has decided to change schools.
Sumler was a member of the Ducks' scout team last season, redshirting his first year on campus after being a two-sport athlete (football and track) at Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, Fla. He was expected to be one of many players hoping to line up alongside returning starter Josh Huff for Oregon this year, but the school's football SID tweeted Wednesday that that won't be the case.
Further details have yet to come out on the topic, but it's certainly a situation to keep an eye on if anything else emerges.
