Oregon is getting its leading tackler back for the 2019 season.
Junior linebacker Troy Dye, who posted 115 tackles last season en route to earning second-team all-Pac-12 honors, announced in a tweet Thursday that he would return to the Ducks for his senior year.

“I think I still have so much left to accomplish, and there is an opportunity to create something special in the year ahead,” Dye wrote.
Along with his triple-digit tackles, Dye also posted two sacks and an interception for the 9-4 Ducks.
Dye had been listed as the No. 8 draft-eligible outside linebacker by ESPN’s Todd McShay last month.
