4-Star ATH Braden Lenzy Flips From Notre Dame To Oregon

Braden Lenzy, a four-star athlete from Portland, has flipped from Notre Dame to his home state Oregon Ducks.

Lenzy, the No. 7 athlete in the country and No. 3 recruit in the state of Oregon, originally committed to the Fighting Irish back on February 22.

Discussing that decision, he told 247Sports that when he stepped on campus at Notre Dame he "realized it was the place" for him.

It is unclear what has changed since that day, but as of now, he will be a Duck. He says that decision is final, as he is "completely shutting down" his recruitment.

Lenzy made the announcement via Twitter.

Here is his full note:

"First I would like to thank the Notre Dame staff, players, commits, and fans for all the love and support they have shown me. In the interest of my future in both football and track I have decided to decommit from Notre Dame. It was a very difficult decision, but one that was best for me. This isn't a reflection of the University of Notre Dame at all. Notre Dame is a first class University and I wish them nothing but success. With this said I would like to flip my commitment and am completely shutting down my recruitment. I am very proud to represent my home state and be Committed to THE University of Oregon for both Football and Track! #GoDucks

Oregon has had success with two-sport athletes playing football and running track, and it looks like Lenzy will be the next to do so.

The four-star athlete projects to play wide receiver at the next level. 247Sports' composite rankings have him at No. 190 in the country.

Lenzy also holds offers from Cal, Colorado, Michigan State, Oregon State, Purdue, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington State, and others.
