Oregon wide receiver Traeshon Holden indicated on Thursday that he plans to return to the Ducks in 2024.

The 6-foot-3 junior closed out the 2023 campaign as the Ducks’ third-leading receiver behind Troy Franklin and Tez Johnson. With Johnson announcing his decision to return on Thursday, Holden followed suit and gave the Ducks more good news ahead of the weekend.

A transfer from Alabama during the 2023 offseason, Holden worked his way into a regular role with the Ducks at receiver. He caught 37 passes for 452 yards and six touchdowns this season — all career-highs.

With Franklin unavailable for the Fiesta Bowl on Monday, Holden started and made five receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. He also had a 63-yard touchdown catch in the Pac-12 Championship Game against Washington.

Holden spent plenty of time in the slot this season, but it’s likely he’ll get more run as an outside receiver next fall as Oregon looks for Franklin’s replacement. Gary Bryant Jr. is expected back, and Jurrion Dickey could make a move in his second season with the program.

In terms of newcomers, Oregon has been linked to Texas A&M transfer Evan Stewart. The Ducks also signed 4-star 2024 recruits Jeremiah McClellan, Ryan Pellum, and Dillon Gresham.
