Oshay Dunmore, former Oregon Ducks linebacker, was added to the Illinois State University football roster by head coach Brock Spack Monday.

The redshirt sophomore will be eligible to play three more years and will be able to play this 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

“We were in need of some depth on the defensive side of the ball, and Oshay is talented enough to potentially help out at a couple positions,” Spack said.

“In high school, he was one of the highest-rated decathletes in the country and played two positions on the field. He’s got experience at cornerback, safety and outside linebacker at Oregon and is also a solid special teams player. He could absolutely play in our secondary, but right now we are hoping he can help out at the outside linebacker position.”

Dunmore posted nine tackles and four solo stops in 10 games with the Ducks in the 2013 season.

He spent his freshman year as a redshirt, working primarily on the scout team.
