Oregon lost another player from its latest recruiting class before the start of fall camp.
Jamal Elliott, a four-star running back from North Carolina, announced his decision to transfer Friday night.
"I am sorry that I have to leave a place that granted me an opportunity to excel but for personal reasons after this semester I will be withdrawing from the university," Elliott posted on Twitter.
Elliott was one of six players from the 2018 recruiting class to graduate early from high school and participate in spring drills with the Ducks. He is the second member of that group to leave the team after wide receiver Jalen Hall returned home following one practice.
Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said he would update Hall's status when it was finalized, but Oregon has not made an announcement about his future with the program.
Elliott was one of seven players who committed to Oregon following the 2017 spring game, highlighting Willie Taggart's successful recruiting weekend that temporarily moved the UO class near the top of the national rankings. He stuck with Oregon following Taggart's deparutre and signed with the Ducks in December before enrolling in January.
With Elliott leaving the program, Travis Dye is the lone running back remaining in Oregon's recruiting class.
Oregon returns senior running backs Tony Brooks-James and Taj Griffin, but the remainder of the depth chart has little experience with sophomore Darrian Felix the only other back with a carry in a game. CJ Verdell and Cyrus Habibi-Likio will be redshirt freshmen next season.
Elliott played only three games during his senior season at Hillside High School in Durham, N.C. due to a sports hernia injury. He ran ran for 684 yards and nine touchdowns in five games as a junior.
The5 5-foot-10, 183-pounder was listed as one of the top 15 running backs and one of the top 300 overall recruits in his class by ESPN, Rivals, and 247Sports.com.
