Utah State redshirt senior QB Damion Hobbs has transitioned to tight end this spring.
With Kent Myers entrenched as the Aggies' starting quarterback, OC David Yost and HC Matt Wells decided to get creative. Said Yost of the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Hobbs, "He’s one of the more athletic guys on this football team, so we thought he might be able to help us on the field. He has probably exceeded our expectations for what a quarterback has done at the tight end position, and there is still a lot to be learned and worked on." Fri, May 12, 2017 05:26:00 PM

Former Oregon redshirt freshman QB Damion Hobbs transferred to Utah State.

Hobbs, a member of the 2013 class, redshirted last season. "I am thankful for the opportunity I had at Oregon, but things simply didn’t work out football-wise," he said. "I’ve been to Utah State and had a good rapport with the coaches so everything was in place and it just felt right." With star QB Chuckie Keeton‘s eligibility set to expire after the coming season, Hobbs could conceivably helm the offense for three years beginning in 2015. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Hobbs will likely compete with Darell Garretson for QB-of-the-future honors on the practice field in 2014. "I just want to bring that winning attitude to the program," Hobbs said. "They’ve been doing that there lately and winning games but I want to keep it going and really want to win and learn as much as I can. I want to come in and be a good teammate too right off the bat."

Oregon redshirt freshman QB Damion Hobbs plans to transfer, according to Duck Territory.

Hobbs was a member of the 2013 class but redshirted during his first season. Jake Rodrigues, another Ducks quarterback, stated he intended to transfer last week. Jeff Lockie appears to have locked up the school's backup quarterback job. Marcus Mariota will almost certainly declare for the NFL following the 2014 season. The school is thin at the position after him, however.
