The Oregon Ducks men’s basketball program has received a verbal commitment from junior college forward Dwayne Benjamin. The 6’6″ star from Mount San Jacinto Junior College made an official visit to Eugene this past weekend.
This isn’t the first time Benjamin has made a verbal commitment to a division one program. He originally committed to the University of Texas-El Paso as a high school senior but did not make the minimum eligibility requirements of the NCAA.
Last season for the Eagles Benjamin averaged 15.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. He is the second verbal commitment in the 2014 recruiting class for head coach Dana Altman joining point guard Casey Benson.
