Former Ducks QB Tyler Shough announces transfer to Texas Tech

Former Oregon Ducks QB Tyler Shough has announced his commitment to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, after announcing two weeks ago he was transferring from the Oregon Ducks.

In 2020, Shough threw for 1,559 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. Shough was benched in the second quarter of the Fiesta Bowl.

The one-year starter also collected 144 passing yards and three touchdowns while playing sparingly behind Justin Herbert in 2019.

Shough, as mentioned in his announcement, will have three years of eligibility as a grad transfer.

Oregon signed five-star quarterback Ty Thompson recently for their 2021 recruiting class. Maybe the writing was on the wall for Shough with Thompson’s arrival and being benched in the Fiesta Bowl.

The Ducks also have four other QBs on their 2021 roster; Freshmen Robby Ashford, Jay Butterfield, sophomore Bradley Yaffe and senior Anthony Brown, who took over for Shough in the Fiesta Bowl.
