Defensive tackle Scott Pagano announced Friday that he will transfer from Clemson to Oregon for the 2017 season.
Pagano made it official with the following Instagram post:
He spent the first three seasons of his collegiate career with the Tigers, and registered 20 tackles and two sacks in 2016.
Pagano revealed his intention to transfer in February, and Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney indicated he wanted to attend a school closer to his home in Hawaii, per Dan Hope of the Independent Mail.
While Pagano missed three games last season due to a broken foot, he was part of Clemson's defensive line rotation and aided in it winning the national championship.
Pagano is eligible to play in 2017 as a graduate transfer, and he will be a welcome addition to an Oregon defense that ranked 126th in the nation in both total yardage and points allowed per game in 2016.
