Oregon will gain some depth at cornerback with the addition of graduate transfer Tim Hough, according to ESPNís Adam Rittenberg.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Hough played three seasons at UNLV and started 15 of 36 games. According to Rittenberg, he will join the Ducks after graduating next month and be eligible to play next year as a senior.
Hough had 19 tackles, broke up three passes and defended three others last season, when the Rebels finished 5-7.
Hough tied the school record for interceptions by a freshman with four in 2015 when he started the final nine games that season and finished with 32 tackles and four pass breakups. He had 28 tackles as a sophomore.
Hough was an all-state selection at Desert Pines High School in Las Vegas as a wide receiver and cornerback. As a senior, he had 35 catches for 760 yards and 11 touchdowns while returning four kickoffs and two interceptions for scores.
Sophomores Thomas Graham and Deommodore Lenoir are the only two Oregon cornerbacks who have played in a Division I college game. Graham started 12 of 13 games last season and ranked third on the Ducks with 62 tackles. Lenoir played in all 13 games as a reserve.
Junior-college transfer Haki Woods and true freshman Verone McKinley III both joined the Ducks for spring football. Freshman Kahlef Hailassie is set to join the team in the fall.
The only other cornerbacks on Oregonís roster are walk-ons Dexter Myers and Charles Sudduth.
