Oregon lands commitment from four-star Okoro

Francis Okoro, a 6-foot-9 power forward and a top 40 prospect in the Class of 2019, announced that he is committing to Oregon.

A native of Illinois, Okoro picked the Ducks over Purdue and Illinois in the end.

While Okoro is currently listed as a member of the Class of 2019, there is a real chance that he could end up reclassifying up a year and enrolling in school this fall. At a well-built 225 pounds, Okoro is the kind of presence that would be a perfect compliment to the loaded front court that Dana Altman currently has committed.

Bol Bol, a top five prospect in the Class of 2018, and Louis King could both end up being one-and-done talents, while Miles Norris is a long and lanky four-man that slots in alongside them. While those three are all finesse players, Okoro is a bully that can do the dirty work around the bucket. Whenever he does arrive on campus, he should be able to fill a role for the Ducks.
