The Ducks got some major news on Wednesday when Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown announced that he would be playing his final season of college football in Eugene. Oregon picked up a commitment from the graduate transfer quarterback to help guide the Ducks after the graduation, Justin Herbert.
The quarterback position was one of the many questions for the Ducks this offseason, especially as Oregon is listed in many preseason Top 25 rankings among the top five teams in the nation.
Brown’s commitment to the Ducks comes after the graduate transfer visited Eugene in early March on an unofficial visit. Brown had Oregon on his shortlist of schools where he was looking to transfer for his final season of eligibility. As a graduate transfer, Brown will have immediate eligibility.
Despite being a three-year starter at Boston College, injuries hampered Brown’s career, including a leg injury that ruled the quarterback out for the 2019 season after just six games. Brown threw for 1,250 yards, nine touchdowns against two interceptions while completing 59.4 percent of his passes through the Louisville game on Oct. 5. The quarterback also ran for 128 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The New Jersey native was a three-year starter for the Eagles, starting 28 games in his career. He finished his tenure at Boston College with 4,738 yards passing, 40 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
