Oregon just landed a big recruit…
Bol Bol, the son of Sudanese NBA star, Manute Bol, will play basketball for the Ducks.
In an essay for The Players’ Tribune, the 7’1″ center said his childhood dream had been to play for Kentucky, because he loved the way Coach Calipari developed young players. However, on the drive back from his recruiting trip to Lexington, Bol knew Oregon was the best fit for his unique style of play.

The five-star recruit chose Oregon over Arizona, Kentucky, UCLA and USC, among other programs.
