Louis King and Miles Norris officially sign with Oregon



On Wednesday, Louis King and Miles Norris put pen to paper, officially signing their National Letters of Intent with Oregon.

The two nationally-ranked recruits have been highly touted throughout their recruiting process. King, a 6-foot-8 five-star forward from Burlington, New Jersey, was a member of the United States U19 World Cup team this past year. Norris, a 6-foot-10 four-star forward from Chula Vista, California spent his freshman and sophomore years at Mater Dei before joining Helix High School and then Brewster Academy for his senior season.

“We really enjoyed getting to know Louis, Miles and their families during the recruiting process,” head coach Dana Altman said in a press release. “These are two exceptional young men and I think our fans are really going to enjoy watching them play and getting to know them. Both of their families have been tremendous to us and they are truly excited about becoming Ducks. Miles and Louis will be great representatives for our basketball program and for the University of Oregon.”

King is the sixth-best small forward in the class of 2018 per ESPN while Norris is ranked 48th in ESPN’s top 60 for the class of 2018. The two commits give Oregon the 24th-ranked recruiting class of 2018 and the fourth-best in the Pac-12 per 247sports.com.

By adding King and Norris, the Ducks have continued a strong recruiting trend that has seen them bring in potential NBA draft first-round pick Troy Brown as part of this season’s team.
