Oregon landed 2023 five-star prospect Kwame Evans, the latest coveted player to align with Dana Altman and the Ducks.

A 6-foot-10 power forward who can also handle the ball, Evans is entering his second year at Montverde Academy in Florida.

“I feel like it fits me the best and gives me the best chance to go to the NBA. It felt like family since day one,” Evans told ESPN.

Kentucky, Auburn, UCF and Arizona were among teams in the running for Evans.
