Oregon lands commitment from coveted SEC transfer wide receiver
Oregon has landed a major transfer pledge from former Texas A&M wide receiver Evan Stewart.
The 6-foot, 175-pound wideout was viewed as one of the best available players in the transfer portal during the entire winter cycle. 247Sports had him ranked as the No. 2 overall transfer and the top-ranked offensive player. Stewart visited Oregon last week and had all the top programs in college football angling for his commitment.
He has three years to play two for the Ducks.

Stewart was a Freshman All-American in 2022 after posting 53 receptions for a team-leading 649 yards with two touchdowns. This past season, he posted 38 receptions for 514 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.
A former 5-star recruit out of Frisco (Texas) Liberty, Stewart was ranked as the No. 11 recruit in the country and the No. 2 wide receiver by the industry-generated 247 Composite.
He’ll join a deep room of receivers at Oregon, but he’ll have a chance to earn the No. 1 role in the offense next season. The Ducks are looking to replace their top receiver from 2023 after Troy Franklin declared for the NFL Draft. Tez Johnson, Traeshon Holden, and Gary Bryant Jr. are returning, as is 5-star 2023 signee Jurrion Dickey. And the 2024 signing class added three more 4-star receivers to the bunch — two of whom were top-100 overall recruits.
The Ducks were already dangerous on offense. With Stewart in the fold, the rich get richer.
