Oregon has landed a massive commitment out of the transfer portal. Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Dillon Gabriel has committed to the Oregon Ducks. He announced his decision over social media.

Gabriel spent the last two seasons in Norman as the Sooners’ starting quarterback for head coach Brent Venables after transferring in from the University of Central Florida prior to the 2022 season. He originally signed with the Knights as a three-star (0.8704 per 247Sports Composite) recruit from Mililani High School in Hawaii. The same system ranked him the No. 754 player nationally, the No. 27 pro-style passer and the No. 9 recruit in Hawaii.

Oklahoma insider weighs in on Dillon Gabriel's transfer to Oregon

In 2023, he led Oklahoma to a 10-2 overall record with the two losses coming to the Kansas Jayhawks and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Gabriel threw for 3,360 yards and 30 touchdowns against just 6 interceptions this season. He had four 300-yard passing games and three 400-yard passing this season, as he helped Oklahoma light up opposing defenses all year.

He’s also an incredibly capable runner, rushing for 373 yards on 93 carries (4.01 YPC) for 12 touchdowns on the ground. Gabriel will arrive in Eugene following the departure of veteran quarterback Bo Nix, who will head to the 2024 NFL Draft after the Fiesta Bowl against No. 23 Liberty, wrapping up his two-year career with the Ducks.
