No mistake on my part. The Rutgers forward recently decided to take his talents over to the West Coast and play under Dana Altman. Omoruyi averaged 13.8 PPG and 7.2 RPG with the Scarlet Knights, one of the the best that the BIG-10 saw last season. It seems that Eugene will have to sit out next season before playing his final season as a redshirt senior in 2020-2021.

Eugene joins Anthony Mathis, the New Mexico State grad transfer, as the second commitment for the Ducks in the last week. Mathis is a sharpshooting guard who actually played with Payton Pritchard in high school in West Linn, Oregon. Mathis averaged 14.4 PPG to go along with 2.2 APG for the Lobos last season and will be immediately eligible. That backcourt should be very entertaining to watch.
If you remember, the Ducks also grabbed Duquesne forward, Eric Williams Jr., not too long ago. Oregon continues to stack up their roster with only four scholarship spots left open for next season. Altman is starting to bring it all together. Now, will UNLV graduate transfer Shakur Juiston be next to join?
