At first it was a "personal matter"

....It was implied to be a family issue, but I guess there was more to it than that.  Now it seems he is not returning. At this time last year, he was still a solid 5-star prospect.  I believe he was the #1 receiver in the country prior to him not showing well at 7-on-7 events. It was reported by several sources that he seemed lackadaisical at them..like he didn't really care that much.  I remember watching a tape on another site and his effort was almost laughable. USC certainly cooled on him.

I know he was being recruited by Stanford for a time, and had offer from them, so I would doubt Oregon academics were the issue. 

Him and Joseph Lewis, the other Hawkins wonderkind receiver, are both out of football now.
