Four-star prospect Jamil Wilson held off on announcing his college decision until March 8, which was the birthday of his deceased mother. And the 6-foot-7, 211-pound power forward from Racine (Wisc.) Horlick High School announced that he will be heading west.
It ended up a three way contest between Michigan State, Oregon and Texas, and the Oregon Ducks won out for Wilson despite having a dismal season this year.
"I think it will just be a great fit," said Wilson about his commitment to Oregon during his press conference. "They like to get up and down the floor. I like to run in transition."
Wilson also expressed confidence that Oregon's fortunes will turn to the better as the young team gains more confidence.
Wilson is the third prospect to join Oregon's 2009 recruiting class along with Jeremy Jacob and E.J. Singler.
Wilson is the No. 93 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
