Oregon Ducks receiver Jalen Brown announced on social media Tuesday that he intends to graduate in June and transfer to another school for his final two seasons of eligibility.
Brown is the stepson of former Arizona running back and 1994 second-round NFL draft pick Chuck Levy.
Brown (6-1, 200) caught 19 passes for 318 yards and three touchdowns last season as a redshirt sophomore. He also threw a touchdown pass. Brown, a former four-star recruit out of Phoenix Mountain Pointe High School, had 26 career catches at Oregon.

Where will he end up?
Justin Hopkins of the 247Sports network offered a thought.
I'm going to wager (early on) he ends up staying closer to home this time. ASU, UA, etc… https://t.co/fmc9vWwkSN
Brown, rated the 107th-best prospect in the 2014 class, narrowed his college choices to Oregon, Vanderbilt, Oregon State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Arizona while in high school, so the Wildcats do have a history with him. He also held an offer from ASU, among others.
So, he might be worth watching as he decides on a second college. Another school to watch is Baylor; his former position coach at Oregon, Matt Lubick, is now the Bears’ co-offensive coordinator.
Brown’s biological father is Adrian Brown, who was an All-Arizona basketball player at Sahuaro High in 1988 before playing at Arizona State.
