High-Level Prospect

Oregon has added another high-level prospect to their 2023 recruiting class in the form of guard Kwame Evans Jr., who is ranked as a top-10 recruit. Evans, who played at Florida’s Montverde Academy, will give coach Dana Altman a unique weapon to build a team around.

Oregon’s 2023 Recruiting Class

The five-star prospect is Oregon’s third commitment in three seasons, following the signing of Kel’el Ware and Nate Bittle in the 2021 class. This would make Oregon’s 2023 recruiting class the No. 2 class in history and one of the top-7 classes in the country.

Ducks Ahead of Arizona

The wisconsin badgers for Oregon fans is that he’s committed to the Ducks ahead of Arizona. Despite receiving several offers from several prestigious programs, Evans Jr. decided to come to the Oregon campus, and was ranked by ESPN. He had also received interest from Kentucky, Auburn, UCLA, and Auburn.

The 6-foot-9 forward has a strong razorback baseball game, and has shown impressive versatility. He can play small-ball power forward or a wing. His versatility makes him effective in five-out and four-out offenses, and he’s a high-level rebounder. He also shows a good shot from deep and can disrupt passing lanes.

The Oregon Ducks have secured the commitment of top 2021 outside linebacker Jabril McNeill, a six-foot-four, 225-pound prospect from Raleigh, North Carolina. McNeill chose Oregon over other top programs including North Carolina State and South Carolina. He has been compared to former NFL star Tremaine Edmunds.

The commitment comes at a time when the Ducks’ recruiting class is expected to be one of the strongest in program history. Oregon’s defensive linemen are consistently among the top 50 nationally. Kayvon Thibodeaux was the top recruit in program history, while Justin Flowe and Noah Sewell were both among the top thirty recruits in the 2020 class.

Oregon’s Coaching Staff

Oregon’s coaching staff has been on a recruiting drive for a top inside linebacker. While McNeill is listed as a three-star ATH, the Oregon coaching staff has been after him like a five-star. He will likely start as an OLB and will join Andrew Faoliu and Adrian Jackson in the depth chart. He will also likely play special teams, but he can use his four-year redshirt rule.

Mookie Cook has committed to the Oregon Ducks for the 2020-21 season. The 6-foot-7, 200-pound small forward is a top-20 prospect and is the No. 4 overall recruit in his class. He visited Lexington last fall and committed to the Ducks in March. In April, he rescinded his commitment, but has since returned to the Ducks. Now, he is Oregon’s second-highest recruit in history.

Ball Handling & Agility

Cook’s commitment to Oregon was the first of three five-star recruits to sign with the Ducks this cycle. Recruiting director Eric Bossi compared Cook to a young Andre Iguodala, who played at Oregon. While Cook’s commitment signals an increased interest from college basketball programs, he still needs to work on his ball handling and agility, particularly his 3-point shooting ability.

Conclusion:

In addition to Cook’s commitment to Oregon, the Ducks have committed to five-star forward Kwame Evans Jr., a five-star forward from Arizona. Despite this, Cook’s original commitment to Oregon was rescinded a week later. He is now considering six other programs.
