Las Vegas PG Jon Loyd commits to Oregon

For all the angst regarding the Oregon coaching staff and the Terrence Jones commitment, Dana Altman is already making an impact on the recruiting trail. Oregon has received a signed LOI from 5'8" point guard Jon Loyd out of Las Vegas.

Loyd is a high energy player who was 2010 Gatorade player of the year from Nevada, led his team to a state championship, and amassed 103 wins while in school. He can push the tempo on offense, and is very active on defense. Loyd has flown under the radar due to his size, but has the quickness to create his own shot. He sounds like a perfect addition to Dana Altman's offense, with his ability to pass and shoot, and should do very well in Altman's defensive gameplan.

With 2 1/2 weeks left until the end of the basketball signing period, the Ducks are making a push to be competitive immediately in the Pac-10 and get their scholarship situation in better shape. Though Altman got a late start, it looks like he's making great strides already. GO DUCKS, and welcome Jon Loyd!
