In Dana we trust right? After a successful season that saw the Oregon Ducks claim the Pac-12 Conference Title and advance to the Sweet 16, Coach Altman has once again struck big on the transfer market, landing the commitment of former Syracuse Orange forward Quincy Guerrier over Arizona State, Memphis and Illinois.
Guerrier comes to Eugene after 2 seasons with Jim Boeheim’s squad, where he started 28 games this past season, averaging 13.7 points and 8.4 rebounds. Standing at 6’7, Quincy is an athletic combo-forward who thrives at the rim, using his combination of size and strength to go over, around and even through his defenders to score. He also knocked down 31% of his triples, which isn’t amazing, but more than respectable enough considering he only hit 3 of 24 attempts (12.5%) as a freshman.
Guerrier is the third transfer Oregon has landed this offseason, joining Oklahoma standout De’Vion Harmon and top JUCO prospect Rivaldo Soares. As he has continually shown us, Dana Altman is not afraid to heavily target the transfer portal in order to fill the team’s needs season after season. Altman doesn’t rebuild, he simply reloads. Dana and the Ducks still have four scholarships to work with for the 21-22 season, but this new iteration of Oregon basketball is starting to take shape and Quincy should figure to be an intriguing addition to the team.
