Oregon Football: Cade Cooper Says Goodbye

Michael WinesAnalyst IJune 20, 2008

For the second time in as many weeks, another Oregon QB has decided to move on.

Cade Cooper joined the Ducks a year ago and redshirted the season while recovering from a foot injury. He transferred from BYU and was highly regarded for his knowledge of the spread offense that Oregon likes to run.

He will be joining the Southern Utah Thunderbirds program and hopes to play this coming season, although that would require a special waiver, as this is his second transfer from one four-year school to another.

Sitting about fifth on the Oregon depth chart and having a lackluster spring practice, I think he could see the handwriting on the wall.

The Ducks will enter summer workouts with five QBs remaining—redshirt sophomores Nate Costa and Justin Roper top the depth chart, followed by true freshmen Chris Harper and Darron Thomas and sophomore transfer Jeremiah Masoli.

I wish Cade all the best in his move to Southern Utah.

GO DUCKS!
