With the 2020 college football season finished, it's time for many players to make decisions about their future: will they declare for the 2021 NFL Draft or return for another year?

This season, the NCAA paused all eligibility granting even seniors an extra year to play college football but it's up to the player to take advantage of it. 

One senior who reportedly will not be taking advantage of it will be tight end Hunter Kampmoyer who confirmed to Oregonlive he will enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

The redshirt senior had a career-high 14 receptions for 161 yards and three touchdowns. He was never a passing option for Oregon until Jacob Breeland suffered a season-ending injury in 2019 which caused Kampmoyer to become the starting tight end. 

In 2019, he had five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. 

He originally enrolled in Eugene, Oregon as a defensive end, recording five tackles as a freshman, before transitioning to tight end. 

With Kampmoyer's decision, the Ducks will have six scholarship tight ends in 2021: Cam McCormick, Spencer Webb, Patrick Herbert, D.J. Johnson, Moliki Matavao, and Terrance Ferguson.
