While teams are preparing for spring practices, the Oregon Ducks were dealt unfortunate news. It appears wide receiver Demetri Burch is ready to move on from the program after spending two years in Eugene.
Burch was a three-star athlete coming to Oregon, yet his versatility was never put on full display. Instead he spent time helping out in the slot for the most part.
Although the majority of transfer news took place during January, Burch went on social media to reveal his future plans. With multiple years of eligibility remaining, the Florida native is embracing the next chapter of his career.
“I want to thank the University of Oregon for accepting me in to their University and allowing me to be apart of there family at this time i want to announce that i will be transferring,” Burch said on Twitter.
Here is the full announcement from his account:

Burch appeared in only six games for the Ducks back in 2018.
Oregon will replace Burch with its crop of incoming freshmen. Four-star wide receivers Lance Wilhoite and Josh Delgado should have an immediate impact for the team.
It seems like programs are always searching for help on the offensive side of the football, which should bode well for Burch. Despite not having much production on the field for Oregon, he’ll have suitors this spring.
