Oregon Ducks football has picked up a highly touted wide receiver without leaving campus.

Ducks basketball star Dwayne Benjamin has finished his playing days on the hard court, and will suit up for the football team as a wide receiver this fall.

Benjamin and the team hinted at the move over the last week or so, and confirmed it Thursday. At 6-7, Benjamin is a natural fit for the receiver position.

The Louisiana native attracted interest from LSU's football team coming out of high school, but of course opted for basketball and Oregon instead. Benjamin's high school football highlights date from 2011, but Scout reporter Kevin Wade found and posted them.
