Oregon football has been hit with a few transfers already this season. Another Duck has reportedly entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

Senior WR Brenden Schooler is opting to transfer to a new school for the 2020 season.

The timing of the move is a bit surprising. Just last week, Schooler was the team's model in their weekly uniform release as seen below.

Of course, there's always the possibility he eventually removes his name from the portal and stays with Oregon. But it's likely Schooler will be a graduate transfer. The news was first reported by James Crepea of The Oregonian.

Schooler missed the first few games of the 2019 season due to a foot injury. As a result, he will be able to utilize this year as redshirt year.

The Oregon receiver was a swiss-army knife type of player for the Ducks. He played safety during his freshman season. Entering his second-year, the Ducks had nearly no depth at receiver, so Schooler made a position change to help the team.

He's stuck at receiver ever since and even became a starter for the Ducks. But Schooler's biggest contributions came on special teams, where he was often tabbed the Ducks' best kickoff coverage player. He was twice selected to the Pac-12 All-Conference 1st team as a special teams player.

The former Oregon receiver was a starter for the Oregon offense. But has just two catches for 44 yards in three games this season.

Schooler's brother, Colin, is a linebacker for the University of Arizona. It's unclear as to where Schooler will end up, but Arizona seems like a potential landing spot.
