Newest Duck is now Official

Running back LaGarrette Blount sent a letter of intent to the University of Oregon today according to a family member. Blount told eDuck Sports earlier this week that he had trimmed the number of suitors for his services to Oregon and Florida State.

"He's going to Oregon," said the family member when eDuck Sports called Blount. "He sent his letter today."

The University of Oregon has not released the names of any prospective student athletes that have sent letters of intent for mid-season transfers yet. In the past the school did not reveal mid-season transfers until early February when high school seniors formalize their commitment with the National Letter of Intent.

This year the earliest a high school senior or junior college transfer that is not eligible for mid-season transfer can formally pledge to a Division I football program is February 6, 2008.
