VIDEO: Jabari Brown Commits To Oregon Ducks And Dana Altman

Class of 2011 basketball prospect Jabari Brown announced his verbal commitment to the University of Oregon Ducks on ESPNU Thursday. "Next year I will be playing at Oregon University -- University of Oregon -- for Coach Altman and his staff," Brown said.

Here's video of Jabari Brown's commitment decision announcement. He puts on a black Ducks hat as he makes it official.

Brown went on to explain his decision: "Oregon landed me because they were the best fit for me. Coach Altman and his staff did a great job of recruiting me, making me feel at home, making me feel comfortable. My visit was great. They told me everything I think I needed to hear out of a school."

He also admitted that the school's close relationship with Nike, through the company's founder and Oregon graduate Phil Knight, "was definitely a factor" in his decision. "I love Nike. I've always worn Nike. But ultimately it was the coaching staff because I would never just use a school because of the shoe. I have to really feel comfortable there and that's how coach Altman made me feel."
