The Oregon men’s basketball roster is complete.
For the second time in less than one week, the Ducks added a recruit who reclassified to join the team next season when guard Addison Patterson announced on Sunday he is headed to Oregon. The 6-foot-6 guard was ranked as a four-star recruit in the class of 2020 before electing to enroll as a freshman in the fall.
Patterson is from Canada, but played last season at Bella Vista Prep in Phoenix, Ariz. He picked the Ducks over UCLA and USC.
The Ducks were down to six scholarship players when Kenny Wooten, Bol Bol and Louis King left early to turn pro, but now Oregon has used its full allotment of 13 scholarships, including 11 players eligible for next season.
Patterson follows five-star center N’Faly Dante, a 6-11 native of Mali, Africa, who announced Tuesday that he would reclassify to join the Ducks next season. Patterson and Dante join forwards CJ Walker, Chandler Lawson and Lok Wur in UO’s freshmen class.
Patterson joins a backcourt that returns Payton Pritchard and Will Richardson while adding junior-college transfer Chris Duarte and grad transfer Anthony Mathis from New Mexico.
Oregon’s only returning player in the frontcourt is Francis Okoro. Grad transfer Shakur Juiston also arrived from UNLV.
The Ducks have also signed Eric Williams, a transfer from Duquesne, and Eugene Omoruyi, a transfer from Rutgers, who both have to sit out next season.
