A month ago, the state of the Oregon Ducks basketball recruiting world was struggling. In a matter of weeks, 5-star PG Dior Johnson and 5-star SF Mookie Cook both announced that they would be de-committing from the program and looking to play elsewhere.

With that news, both Oregon’s 2022 and 2023 classes tanked in the national rankings, and things did not look very promising.

However, the past 48 hours have offered a major change in momentum.

In that time, Dana Altman and the Ducks have picked up a number of predictions to land not only 5-star PF Kwame Evans, the No. 7 player in the 2023 class, but they also are now the predicted landing spot for Cook, who opened up his recruitment at the end of June.

Predictions only mean so much in the recruiting world, but with Evans expected to announce his final decision on August 2nd, we will see how much truth there is to this story.

If Evans does end up committing to the Ducks on Tuesday, then Oregon fans should feel good about the prospect of getting Cook back as well. After Cook originally committed to the Ducks, he openly recruited Evans to Eugene as well, who he had already had a previous friendship with.

Does this mean that both players are back in the fold? Should Evans commit, how quickly will Cook follow suit? That’s all yet to be seen, but Duck fans should love to hear this news to start the month of August.
