Tra Carson Transferring From Oregon Football As Spring Practice Begins

Oregon will enter spring ball without one of its top running backs, as Tra Carson is transferring.

The Oregon Ducks start up spring football this week, and they'll do so without one of the many candidates to share some of the LaMichael James load. That would be Tra Carson, a sophomore running back from Texas, who hasn't enrolled in spring classes and will transfer.

Carson got into games last year, putting up 254 rushing yards on 45 attempts in 10 games. He ranked fourth on the team in rushing yardage and could've contended to steal some snaps from Kenjon Barner and De'Anthony Thomas. There's no word yet on where he might like to take his considerable talents.

Oregon blog Addicted To Quack says:

It looks like Carson may have been leaving open the possibility of remaining at Oregon as he finished up the winter quarter; however, he will not return for the spring.

While we're here, let's watch some college football videos from SB Nation's new YouTube channel together:
