No. 1 2018 hoops prospect Marvin Bagley III includes Oregon in final six

Now that Oregon basketball is likely considered to be among the nation's elite after the program's Elite Eight run last season, the Ducks are beginning to see the rewards of their on-court success.

On Thursday night, Marvin Bagley III, the nation's top prospect in the class of 2018, announced his final six schools.

As you can see, the Ducks are among Bagley's top six. Other schools include Duke, Kentucky and Pac-12 foes UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State. All six schools have offered Bagley.

In 2015, Bagley was named the MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year as he averaged 19.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 2.3 assists per game. That year, Bagley also led Corona Del Sol to a state title.

Bagley is a 6-10 power forward who transferred to Sierra Canyon High School in California and had to sit out last season.

Bagley is a native of Phoenix, Arizona, which is why he has the Wildcats and Sun Devils in his top six.
