Dana Altman went to Nebraska for his latest recruit.
Lok Wur, a 6-foot-9, 190-pound forward from Papillion, Neb. announced a verbal commitment to play for the Ducks on Sunday morning.
Wur was originally declared ineligible by the NCAA and planned to head to junior college at Eastern Florida State College, but was recently cleared to play, according to multiple media reports.
Once Wur was able to play next season, he received more than 30 scholarship offers including Texas A&M, Iowa, and Washington State. Oregon offered him a scholarship last week and he committed the Ducks after visiting the school.
Wur has made mention of recent Oregon big men on Twitter.
On his way to Eugene, Wur tweeted “At Denver airport and some of these ppl think I’m Bol Bol”. He added #chrisboucher to the Tweet announcing his pledge to the Ducks.
Wur averaged 20.8 points, 10 rebounds, and 2.5 blocked shots as a senior at Papillion-La Vista South High School.
Wur becomes the third member of Oregon’s freshman class next season and the fifth newcomer on the roster. His addition gives Altman eight players currently slated to play next year.
Guards Payton Pritchard and Will Richardson return along with sophomore forward Francis Okoro. Forwards C.J. Walker and Chandler Lawson will arrive as freshmen along with Wur.
Oregon will also add junior-college guard Chris Duarte and Anthony Mathis, a graduate transfer from New Mexico.
Oregon has added transfers Eric Williams from Duquesne and Eugene Omoruyi from Rutgers, although both will have to sit out a season unless they receive a waiver to play immediately from the NCAA.
