Bol Bol chooses Oregon – Nov. 21, 2017

Oregon has made a splash in the past four recruiting classes landing potential pros in Dillon Brooks, Payton Pritchard, Troy Brown Jr., and now Bol Bol. If Bol’s name sounds familiar, it should. His father, Manute, is one of the best shot blockers in NBA history. His son, Bol, has taken it a step further adding an offensive arsenal to his ability to alter shots. In doing so, Bol has become one of the nation’s elite players and a five-star prospect. He’ll give the Ducks their first consensus Top Five recruit in program history.

Bol’s length and ability to move at his size were arguably the two biggest takeaways from the weekend. When he adds more strength to his frame, Bol is going to be a real challenge for opposing post players to handle. The game is changing and going away from traditional cog in the middle centers but he stepped out and hit a 3-pointer with clean mechanics in this eval.

Bol is unique of a prospect as we could see in a decade or more. He is a finesse center who can hit shots from anywhere. Obviously his incredible length allows him to score at will over players shorter than him. But he has hands to catch balls out of his area, he can hit fadeaways a step or two outside the block and he even has range to the arc at a very high rate. His is averaging 24 points, 10 rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game. He is even shooting 49% from 3pt range.

Bol showed the length and athleticism to make plays in the middle. I like his size and willingness to run the floor. Bol is still developing his offensive game.
