The Oregon men's basketball team will have a little more international flavor next season.
The Ducks landed a commitment Friday from Ehab Amin, a 6-foot-4 graduate transfer from Egypt who started his career at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Amin missed last season with an injury but averaged 16.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and an NCAA-best 3.4 steals in 2016-17.
Amin had been committed to Nevada but announced earlier this month he would re-open his recruitment and look for a school where he could have a bigger impact.
"After a lot of consideration I've come to a decision on where to finish my college career," Amin posted on Twitter. "I would like to thank every school who's been recruiting me. ... I've decided to be an Oregon Fighting Duck!"
Amin, who has one year of eligibility remaining, could be in line for significant minutes given Oregon's lack of experience in the backcourt. The Ducks are replacing senior shooting guard Elijah Brown and wing Troy Brown, who turned pro after his freshman season and was drafted 15th overall by the Wizards.
Junior Payton Pritchard will be Oregon's most experienced guard, with sophomores Victor Bailey and Abu Kigab also returning. The Ducks also signed four-star point guard Will Richardson as part of its incoming recruiting class, which includes five-star forward Louis King and center Bol Bol.
