Seven McGee is no longer with the Oregon Ducks football program.

Reports emerged Monday afternoon that the second-year wide receiver planned to enter the transfer portal. Coach Dan Lanning confirmed the departure when he met with reporters Monday evening.

“I wish him nothing but the best moving forward, but I won’t speak on it any more than that,” Lanning said.

The 5-foot-8 running back-turned-receiver initially entered the transfer portal following the departure of coach Mario Cristobal last winter. Coach Dan Lanning talked him out of that move and he returned to the team.

In the spring, he drew comparisons to Oregon legend De’Anthony Thomas for his athleticism and versatility. He looked set to have a featured role in the pass game after opening the spring game with a long touchdown reception on the first play from scrimmage.

A sophomore from Rochester, New York, McGee committed to Oregon back in 2018. As a freshman last season, he played in 13 of the team’s 14 games while putting up 61 rushing yards on 14 carries and 84 receiving yards on seven catches.

As the season has gone on, Oregon’s top receivers have separated from the pack. Troy Franklin, Chase Cota, and Kris Hutson have earned the majority of the snaps and targets. With backs and tight ends a big part of what offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham wants to do in the pass game, there’s only been so much to go around. McGee has 11 receptions for 67 yards so far this year.

He’s played in seven games this season, so he won’t be able to save the year with a redshirt. The next transfer portal window opens on Dec. 5 and lasts for 45 days.

The Ducks face Colorado in Boulder on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. PT on ESPN.
