Oregon’s recent success on the court has led to an influx of talented recruits looking at Eugene, and that recruiting success continued on Monday as five-star recruit Troy Brown announced his commitment to the Ducks.
As far as how he announced the decision? Forget a bunch of hats on a table, Brown took it one step further:

Brown is a 6’8’’ forward from Las Vegas is rated the No. 2 small forward in the nation at the No. 12 prospect overall by 247Sports.
Last year, Brown averaged 19 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists for Centennial High School, earning first team all-state honors.
Brown chose Oregon over other contenders that included Kansas, Georgetown, Alabama and Ohio State.
In an interview with Scout, Brown said it was the coaching staff that made the difference.
About two weeks ago I had two schools in mind and it came down to which coaching staff I felt most comfortable with and that’s what did it.
The Ducks had one more scholarship spot and it looks like that will be filled by Brown. Oregon was also in the running for four-star project Daejon Davis, but after the news that Brown had committed to the Ducks, Davis chose to commit to Washington. Had Brown committed elsewhere, it is likely Davis would have landed with the Ducks.
Brown joins four-stars Victor Bailey Jr. and Abu Kigab in Oregon’s 2017 recruiting class. Check out some of his highlights below:
