Former Oregon Linebacker Isaac Slade-Matautia Transferring to SMU

2020 Oregon starting Linebacker Isaac Slade-Matautia announced Tuesday he is transferring to SMU. Slade-Matautia has two years of eligibility remaining and is rejoining Defensive Coordinator Jim Levitt whom Slade-Matautia worked with at Oregon when he was a freshman in 2018.

The 6-1, 235-pound defensive leader was college football’s only returning FBS linebacker that had at least 60 tackles and double-figure pass breakups from the previous year.

ESPN rated Slade-Matautia as a four-star prospect and the No. 2 recruit from Hawaii in the 2017 recruiting class. He finishes his Oregon career with 127 tackles and 16 pass deflections.
