Manute Bol's son picks OR for basketball

Manute Bol's son picks OR for basketball

Kentucky's 2018 recruiting class took a bit of a hit on Monday when 5-star center Bol Bol announced his commitment to Oregon.

At a media availability Monday, Oregon coach Dana Altman said he expects Bol to only be with the Ducks for a season before heading to the National Basketball Association.

In a post on The Players Tribune Monday, 18-year-old Bol Bol said he will be heading to Eugene in the fall to join the OR program. I know my dad would want me to represent my family well.

Five-star recruit Bol Bol, the 7-2 son of longtime National Basketball Association player Manute Bol, has chosen his college. Before that, I knew they had a lot of jerseys, a lot of different shoe combinations, but that was about it.

"It was really those first few meetings with Coach (Tony) Stubblefield that impressed me the most", Bol wrote. "I said, 'Fellas, this is a unique opportunity for us and if we don't work our tails off and get ourselves in on really good prospects and guys we feel fit our program, then we have nobody one to blame but ourselves'".

"And he was honest about the fact that OR has never really gotten a top recruit when it was between the Kentuckys and Dukes. What he did was lay out the vision they had for me". He transferred from Mater Dei in California to Findlay Prep earlier this month. He's also the No. 1 center and No. 3 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class, according to 247Sports, a skilled big man with as much defensive promise and much more offensive polish than his father.

Bol is considered a five-star recruit and is the highest-ranked prospect ever signed by the Ducks.
