Southeastern Louisiana signs former Oregon QB

Hammond, LA (Sports Network) - Former University of Oregon quarterback Bryan Bennett has transferred to Southeastern Louisiana, Lions coach Ron Roberts announced Tuesday.

Bennett, a 6-foot-3, 204-pound junior from Encino, Calif., will have two years of eligibility remaining. He will participate in spring practice, which begins Feb. 25.

Bennett played in 18 career games as a backup at Oregon. He could fill a need for Southeastern Louisiana because the team is losing its top two quarterbacks, graduated starter Nathan Stanley and backup Brian Young, the 2011 starter.

"The biggest thing Bryan's going to bring to the table is that he's a dual threat," Roberts said. "Bryan has played in some big-time games and has a great ability to run the football. He's got a great arm and has played at the highest level of college football. We're excited about what he's going to bring, both athletically and leadership-wise, to the football team."

Bennett is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job with returning players Jordan Barnett and Brian Ensminger.
