Dana Altman did it again.
After a brutal start to the summer that saw de-commitments from both 5-star PG Dior Johnson and 5-star SF Marquis ‘Mookie’ Cook, the Oregon Ducks were able to build up the 2023 recruiting class back to full strength.
On Friday, Cook announced that he would once again be committing to the Ducks after opening up his recruitment for the month of July and exploring his options. This comes not long after fellow 5-star PF Kwame Evans committed to the Ducks and gave Oregon some star-power in the class.
The addition of Evans moved Oregon all the way up from No. 31 in the national recruiting rankings to No. 7.
So where do the Ducks rank now with Cook in the mix as well? Take a look…
