Oregon’s headed to the Bg Dance! This March holds new meaning for We, the Oregon Faithful as Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green, will take to the hardwood this coming Thursday in a first round match-up with familiar foe, BYU. Amidst the tension surrounding the moments leading up to Selection Sunday, head coach Dana Altman took a step closer to landing one of the top guards in the class of 2015, Jaquan Lyle (5-Star/Huntington, WV/Rivals100).
Expected to announce his program decision tonight, Lyle would instantly be in contention for a starting role if he ends up among the Tall Firs. No stranger to shooting the long ball, Lyle is the definition of a facilitator who instantly brings teammates to a higher level of play. Standing 6-foot-5 and a stout 215 lbs., the East Coast product is the spark Altman needs to continue building success for years to come in Eugene. Stay tuned!
The Ducks are finding its stride this recruiting cycle deep in the heart of once-untouchable territory — Los Angeles. Wide receiver/defensive back Jeremey Kelly (3-Star/Los Angeles, CA) may have USC in his backyard but is looking north for what he calls a “game-changer.”
“I’ve been talking a lot to the Oregon staff,” said Kelly. ”If they offered me that would probably put them in my top group. I love the offense, and the coaching staff tells me they want me at receiver.”
