Ducks land transfer from ECU guard Nishod Strother

Ducks land transfer from ECU guard Nishod Strother

The offensive line isn’t generally thought of as a major area of need for the Oregon Ducks this offseason, but as Dan Lanning has always said, if the opportunity arises for them to increase the talent level on the roster, then they will take it.

It appears that they did just that, adding East Carolina transfer Nishad Strother to the roster. Strother announced his commitment on Monday and will take one of the two available scholarships that Lanning and Co. had to work with.

Strother was a three-year starter for the Pirates at left guard, starting 30 of 34 career games, including all 13 games in the 2022 season. He entered the transfer portal on April 29 with two years of eligibility remaining.

While Strother has settled into the LG position, he has also spent time at left tackle in his career as well.

Oregon fans don’t quite know how the offensive line rotation is going to shake out, but they can feel confident that there is a surplus of talent on the roster at that position. Between potential starters like Josh Conerly, Ajani Cornelius, Steven Jones, Junior Angilau, Jackson Powers-Johnson, and Marcus Harper, Strother now joins the fold as someone fighting for a starting spot.

With Strother’s addition to the roster, the Ducks now have two scholarships available heading into the summer.
