Ducks Basketball Recruiting on the Move: 2 New Offers for the Class of 2012

After a very disappointing loss to Colorado in the Pac-12 tournament, it's back to work for the Ducks' staff. Matt Prehm of 247 reports that Dana Altman and assistant coach Tony Stubblefield (UPDATE: Stubblefield wasn't actually there. We apologize for this error. We will talk to our resident stalker about correct telescope usage) visited 2012 recruit Christopher Obekpa today and made him an offer. Obekpa is a 6'8 center who plays for Our Savior New American in New York. He's a 3* prospect according to Rivals and also has offers from Cincinnati, Connecticut, Providence, St. Johns, and West Virginia, among others.

Prehm also reports that the Ducks have offered Junior College guard Keon Pledger, along with Arizona, Baylor, and Marquette, among others. Pledger is a 6'3 shooting guard who was highly regarded out of high school but failed to qualify academically. Pledger can fill it up from deep and would be a strong candidate to start at SG next year for the Ducks. Recall that the Ducks have expressed interest in a couple other JUCO shooting guards already. With the graduation of Devoe Joseph and Jabari Brown's transfer, it's clearly a position of need for next year.
