The former first-team USA Today All-American from Graham, Wash., as well as the state's offensive MVP (Seattle Post-Intelligencer), was among the nation's top-rated offensive linemen coming out of Bethel High School in 2004, yet was still looking to make an appearance in a game in two seasons at Oregon.
He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at another institution.
He joins redshirt freshman defensive lineman Brian Truelove among eligible returnees not on the Ducks' roster when they open spring practice Tuesday, April 4. Truelove had previously announced his intentions to transfer to Portland State.
Bellotti also announced the return of lineman Nuvraj Bassi to the Ducks' spring roster. The Surrey, British Columbia native, who redshirted in his first year with the Ducks in 2001, was granted a sixth season to complete his final year of eligibility in 2006 after taking part in a one-year religious mission during the 2005 campaign.
Bassi had accumulated six tackles in eight appearances as a reserve offensive and defensive lineman in his first three seasons at Oregon from 2002-04.
