Quack Fix: Altman Hatches a Top-20 Class; Bennett, Radcliffe & Bears, Oh My!

No disrespect intended towards Cal, but today we're gonna lead with some hoops.

We're gonna lead with some hoops because what happened yesterday - albeit expected - is nothing short of amazing, when you consider the shambles left in the wake of Ernie Kent's firing. Dana Altman had a lot to sell: playing time, resurrecting a program that was a conference contender just a few years ago, an amazing new facility, new staff, new offense and a rabid fan base sure to embrace anyone wearing the green and yellow. Sell he did, signing four quality players in what was ranked the no. 19 class by Rivals and no. 18 by ESPN. Well done, sir. Well done.

  • R-G UO hoops beat writer Bob Clark with the rundown of Oregon's LOI-day coup: Jabari Brown, Bruce Barron, Brett Kingma and Austin Kuemper.
  • John Hunt of The Oregonian provides brief profiles for each new Duck.
  • Paul Westhead also landed four new recruits, receiving LOIs from two guards and two forwards...I'm guessing they can all run and shoot. And...Jim Moore hopes to continue Oregon's rise in the volleyball ranks with three new recruits, including Oregon's Gatorade player of the year, Elizabeth Brenner from Jesuit H.S., and two talented California hitters.
Okay, back to football.

You know the rules. Keeping good quack to yourself isn't allowed. Please support your fellow Duck fans and post anything good in the comments. Go Ducks...and thank you veterans.
