Forward Louis King announced that he would commit to Oregon in a short video released on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. The 6-foot-6 King is a consensus five-star recruit who is also rated as the 21st best basketball player in the class of 2018 by ESPN.
King averaged 13.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game last season as a junior at Hudson Catholic High School in Jersey City, New Jersey. He was also a member of USA Basketball’s U-19 team that won bronze at the 2017 U-19 World Cup.
King chose Oregon over Kansas, North Carolina State, Syracuse, UConn, Seton Hall, Purdue and Maryland. He joins four-star recruit Miles Norris in Oregon’s 2018 recruiting class.
