It was a great day for Dana Altman following a tough month of July.
After both 5-star PG Dior Johnson and 5-star SF Mookie Cook decommitted from the Oregon Ducks over a month ago, Altman turned things around and picked up a commitment from 5-star PF Kwame Evans, the No. 2 ranked player in the 2023 class, per ESPN.
Evans, who is among the highest-rated players to ever commit to the Ducks, will now headline Oregon’s class and potentially bring other talented players with him. Over the weekend, Cook picked up a couple of predictions to commit to the Ducks once again, where he would now join his good friend Evans.
So where do the Ducks now rank in the 2023 national recruiting rankings following the addition of Evans? Here’s a look:
