Ducks’ run in tournament helping in landing top basketball recruit?

The number four ranked high school player – according to ESPN – has announced that he will he will reveal his college decision at the McDonald’s All-American game.  The game is set for April 3rd and will be aired on ESPN.  The 6-foot-8 forward has narrowed his school down to Arizona, Kentucky, Oregon or Washington.

Originally, Oregon was cut from Aaron Gordon’s copious list of offers but after seeing the Ducks rise in the polls and the elevated play of former AAU teammate Domininc Artis, Gordon put them back on his short list.  Gordon, who attends Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, conveniently attended the Ducks’ second round shellacking of fifth seed Oklahoma State.  Oregon’s success in the tournament only helps in solidifying this game changer’s interest.

Aaron Gordon has the potential to lead the Ducks to the promise land.

With the Ducks losing three of their starters and sixth man to graduation, they could use someone like Gordon, who could single-handedly bring this program to the next level.  ”Definitely tryin’ to keep Oregon in his ear,” Artis said.  ”It would be great if we got him up here for next year.”  With a close friend and former – hopefully future – teammate in Artis backing Oregon up, Gordon could be swayed into flocking North.  With this potential lottery pick in the Altman’s starting five next year the Ducks could be making even more noise next year than they are right now.

The Ducks are primarily known for their fast-paced cut-throat offense in football, but the basketball team might soon join them as the Aaron Gordon show.
