Don't mess with the Ducks.

Oregon basketball made its first Final Four in over 70 years in April, and the Ducks have carried over some of that momentum onto the recruiting trail.

Earlier this afternoon, five-star center Bol Bol announced his commitment to Oregon. Bol, the son of former NBA center Manute Bol, is the No. 3 player in the 2018 class.

Additionally, the Ducks have already signed five-star small forward Louis King, four-star shooting guard Will Richardson and four-star power forward Miles Norris. There's a lot of talent on its way to Eugene.

In fact, Oregon currently has the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Of course, these rankings are subject to change, so someone will likely knock the Ducks out of the No. 1 spot at some point.

Even so, Oregon seems to have something special brewing.
