Eugene, Ore. -- The transfer portal giveth, and the transfer portal taketh away. Former USC wide receiver Devon Williams' commitment to Oregon after an initial commitment to Oregon State has concluded one of the wilder transfer sagas in the most recent cycle. The timeline is as follows:
September 11 - Devon Williams enters the transfer portal, signalling his departure from USC.
September 21 - Devon Williams visits Oregon State during their game vs. Cal Poly and is supposed to visit Oregon following the game. Williams cancels his visit to Eugene and opts to stay in Corvallis.
September 25 - Oregon State announces the completed transfer of Devon Williams. His picture and bio appear on the official team roster, accompanied by an official press release.
September 26 - Reports begin to filter out that Williams has enrolled in classes at Oregon State but has not physically attended one, keeping his commitment and enrollment to OSU non-binding. Williams leaves Corvallis and returns to his home in Los Angeles as rumours begin to swirl that he is actually interested in Oregon, a program that he was close to committing to in 2018.
September 27 - Williams officially announces his commitment to the University of Oregon.
Naturally, there are still a great many questions surrounding the last four days of Williams' recruitment, but as of now, the 6 foot 4 receiver and former no. 1 athlete in the class of 2018 is coming to Eugene.
