Dana Altman steals Ehab Amin, former steals leader, from Texas A&M Corpus-Christi

Yet another talented transfer for Dana Altman

NCAA Basketball: Texas A&M CC at St. Mary’s Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The Oregon Ducks are looking to have a bounce-back season after their lackluster 2017 campaign. Altman has taken the Ducks to unparalleled levels of success on the recruiting trail, but those who have followed the program know that the offseason isn’t finished until Altman finds a talented transfer.

Ehab Amin formerly of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has committed to the Ducks for his final season of eligibility and will compete for a starting role. The 6’4 shooting guard sat out last year due to a hip injury, but in his previous three years he saw action in 102 games. Let us hope that Ehab took full advantage of his rEhab (see what I did there?)

Although his long-range shot could use some improvement (.290 from three-point range), Amin posted impressive numbers for the Islanders during his Junior year (16.9 points per game, .462 field goal percentage, 6.6 rebounds per game, and an NCAA leading 124 steals in ‘17).

Amin will join returning Ducks Kenny Wooten, Payton Pritchard, Victor Bailey Jr., Paul White, Abu Kigab, and Will Johnson. Of course he will not be the only fresh face at Matt Knight Arena, as incoming freshman Bol Bol, Louis King, Will Richardson and Miles Norris have committed to Oregon as well.
