Redshirt sophomore Hunter Kampmoyer is going through his third position change in as many years.
Kampmoyer started as an outside linebacker, moved to defensive end and now finds himself catching passes at tight end for the Oregon Ducks. Despite an ever changing role, Kampmoyer is enjoying the ride with many turns.
“I’ve played a lot of different positions here,” Kampmoyer said, per 247 Sports’ Erik Skopil. “It’s just kind of been my experience. I enjoy it.”
The converted tight end spent time at the position as a scout team member last year. He caught the coaching staff’s attention in scout reps so they decided to make the adjustment full time this season.
Kampmoyer isn’t completely clueless at the position. He played tight end in high school but he is leaning on tight end teammates Cam McCormick, Ryan Bay and Jacob Breeland to help expedite the process.
“It’s been a lot of learning and trying to get better every day at it,” Kampmoyer admitted. “I’m getting it slowly.”
The 6-foot-4, 262 pound Kampmoyer certainly has the frame to be a tight end.
