Top 25 San Diego PF Miles Norris talks commitment to Oregon

Miles Norris is off the board to Oregon, giving the Ducks a five-star prospect and a strong start to their 2018 recruiting class.

Oregon’s 2018 class is off to a good start as the Ducks have landed a commitment from Top 25 power forward Miles Norris.

The 6-foot-10, 200-pound post from La Mesa (Calif.) Helix is Scout’s 22nd ranked prospect in the class.

“I’m going to the University of Oregon,” Norris told Scout. “It felt like the overall fit for me; it felt like home. When I was there on my unofficial visit it felt like family and I loved the campus, fans and school.”

Norris is skilled four man who can face up, score on the block, rebounds, block shots and will improve in all of those areas as he continues to gain strength.

"Miles is a terrific player that can do so many different things," said Ryan Silver, the Director of Norris' AAU team, Earl Watson Elite. "He is a special talent."

The Ducks’ Final Four run and style of play only added to Norris’ reasons for choosing Oregon.

“I love their style of play; I think I can play my best and excel in it. They just had a great season. Especially when they got to the Final Four without Chris Boucher because I didn’t think they could get that far without one of their best players.”

Dana Altman and staff have told Norris that he could come in and help fill Boucher’s shoes.

“They compare me to Boucher in how I run the floor and how I use my athleticism and can play on perimeter,” Norris said.

The five-star prospect plans on stepping in at Oregon and continuing the program’s recent successful run.

“I’m gonna go in and work hard, get a good education and hopefully get to the next level,” Norris said.
