The Oregon Ducks’ roster for the upcoming season is going to look vastly different from the 2017-18 version, and it may still not be done coming together.
In addition to graduating seniors Elijah Brown, MiKyle McIntosh and Roman Sorkin the Ducks saw freshman Troy Brown enter the NBA Draft and reserves M.J. Cage and Keith Smith both transfer to Pepperdine. Oregon has responded by signing the No. 4 recruiting class in the country highlighted by 5-star prospects Bol Bol and Louis King.
They have also sought numerous graduate transfer options, though so far none have ended up opting to come to Eugene for their final season. Among those they targeted was former Texas A&M-Corpus Christi guard Ehab Amin, who ended up committing to Nevada.
However, Amin’s spot on the Nevada roster disappeared when the Wolf Pack surprisingly saw twins Caleb and Cody Martin withdraw from the NBA Draft, making him a free agent once again. That could be to Oregon’s advantage, according to 247Sports’ Matt Prehm.
Amin told Prehm he is “interested” in Oregon and hopes to take an official visit there soon, though no date has been set. He’s already visited Rutgers and had been looking at Texas Tech and Wichita State prior to picking Nevada.
The 6-foot-4 Amin missed last season with a hip injury but averaged 16.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 3.4 steals per game in 2016-17.
