Four-star recruit Jordan Bell has qualified to start practicing and playing with the Oregon men’s basketball team, according to The Oregonian.
Bell, a 6-foot-7 forward, committed to the Ducks as part of the 2013 class. He’ll have all four years of eligibility and can start practicing as soon as he arrives. While it’s unclear whether he will be redshirted this season, Bell said that he would like to play if Oregon head coach Dana Altman thinks he can make a contribution to the team.
Before he could become eligible, Bell had to work on improving his SAT scores. During that time he also worked with a trainer to remain in shape physically.
Bell is known as a defensive stopper and as a player who can effect the game through rebounding and blocking shots.
