High School Basketball: McDonald's All-American Games Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Oregon women’s basketball program has been making steps in the right direction ever since they hired Kelly Graves as the head coach of the team, and on Sunday, the Ducks made another big step forward.

Oregon signed Sabrina Ionescu, who was named the USA Today national player of the year as well as being named the MVP of the McDonald’s All-American Game. Ionescu is rated as the No. 4 overall player in the nation by ESPNW, making her the highest ranked player to ever sign with the Ducks.

During her senior season with Miramonte High School, Ionescu averaged 25.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 8.8 rebounds and 4.5 steals per game as she led her team to the CIF open division state championship.

Before Ionescu signed with the Ducks, they already had the No. 7 ranked signing class in the nation by ESPNW. This signing will surely propel them higher up those rankings, and it will be exciting to see how that translates onto the court next season.
