Ducks Add Texas Transfer

Ducks Add Texas Transfer

A spokesman for the University of Oregon today confirmed that Marcus Davis, 6-1, 185, 4.45, League City (Texas), Clear Creek HS, has enrolled at Oregon after transferring from the University of Texas.

Marcus Davis was an US Army All-American high school player in his first year at Texas but was suspended indefinitely by Longhorns Head Coach Mack Brown following an incident in the early morning hours on November 29, 2009.

According to the web site,, Davis was stopped around 6:45 a.m. because of driving on a flat tire. He was then arrested for driving while intoxicated and for possession of a controlled substance. The charges against Davis were later drastically reduced.

Brown suspended Davis immediately from the Longhorns final games of the season and the Rose Bowl game for the BCS Championship. On January 1, 2010, the blog site posted a report indicating Davis was transferring and sources tell that soon afterward, Davis contacted Oregon's Chip Kelly about transferring to Eugene, ironically prior to a number of legal incidents involving Oregon players.

Davis appeared in four games for the Longhorns in 2009, recording four tackles, including two on special teams, one sack and one tackle for loss.

The Ducks are expected to release an official statement regarding Davis' enrollment later today. Recommended Stories
