Things in the college basketball recruiting world happen quickly.

It was just over a month ago that the Oregon Ducks’ No. 2 ranked recruiting class suffered a gut punch after 5-star SF Mookie Cook, the No. 4 ranked player in the 2023 class, announced his de-commitment from the Ducks.

Now, in the past 24 hours, not only have the Ducks picked up several predictions for Cook to choose Oregon once again, but they are also the overwhelming favorites to land 5-star PF Kwame Evans, the No. 7 ranked player in the class.

According to three analysts on 247Sports, plus one analyst from On3, Evans is overwhelmingly predicted to commit to the Ducks for his college ball. Anyone who followed the Mookie Cook recruitment shouldn’t see this as a surprise if we are to believe that Cook is going to come back to Oregon as well. After he originally committed to the Ducks, he was openly recruiting his good friend and former teammate to come play with him in Eugene.

So could we see the two pair up a year from now? It’s seeming incredibly likely. Evans has set a commitment date for August 2nd, so we will find out soon.
