Oregon recruiting: Forward Jordan Bell commits to Dana Altman's Ducks

Stephen Dunn

The Oregon Ducks and coach Dana Altman received a commitment from 2013 forward Jordan Bell.

The Oregon Ducks added athletic power forward Jordan Bell to their 2013 class on Thursday, according to 247Sports.com recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer.

The 6'7, 190-pound forward from Long Beach, Calif., is rated by ESPN and Scout.com as a three-star prospect, but 247Sports.com has him as a four-star recruit.

Bell had come down to Oregon and Auburn as his finalists. The Long Beach Polytechnic High School forward visited the Ducks in late October, and he's the first basketball scholarship for Dana Altman's team. Oregon also received commitments for the basketball team from brothers Tyrell and Tyree Robinson, but their scholarships will be on the football team's tab.

Bell is one of the nation's better shotblockers at a wiry 6'7. His athleticism has made him a solid rebounder as well, but he needs polish on his offensive game, according to ESPN's scouting service.

Altman has two more basketball scholarships available for 2013.
