Oregon Basketball picks up sixth commitment in 2012 class in PG/SG Willie Moore

New, 8 comments

Multiple sources are reporting this morning that Oregon has picked up its sixth commitment in the 2012 recruiting class with the addition of combo-guard Willie Moore, who visited the Ducks this past week. Moore is a 6-3 PG/SG from Cincinnati, who was initially recruited by former Cincinnati recruiting coordinator and current Oregon assistant coach, Tony Stubblefield. Moore originally committed to Duquesne but was released from his commitment after their head coach was dismissed in March. In addition to the Ducks Moore was also considering South Carolina. His presence will add much needed youth and depth to Oregon's back court.

With six commitments in the 2012 class, Oregon has only one scholarship remaining. Dana Altman originally indicated that he would like to leave one or two scholarship offers from this year's class available for next year. However, Oregon is still in the running for consensus top 10 recruit PF Anthony Bennett. Certainly Altman wouldn't hesitate to fill the class with someone of Bennett's caliber. Oregon is also in the running for top 100 center Chris Obekpa and may still be considering junior college shooting guard Keon Pledger as well.

Update: Anthony Bennett has narrowed his choices to Oregon, Kentucky, and UNLV (Florida has been eliminated).
