Coach Dana Altman was set to bring back just three players from last season's roster - point guard Payton Pritchard, combo guard Will Richardson and post Francis Okoro - and desperately needed to finish strong on the recruiting trail.

Dante, a five-star recruit ranked no. 18 in ESPN's class of 2020, chose OR over Kentucky. "A place where I will get a strong education and that has a family atmosphere", Dante wrote.

Dante becomes the highest-ranked player of Oregon's 2019 class and joins fellow five-star CJ Walker, four-star big man Chandler Lawson, three-star forward Lök Wur and juco guard Chris Duarte.

Dante should give the Ducks an immediate boost on the defensive end and on the boards, and he'll be a scoring presence inside the paint. But the Ducks reloaded with the additions of graduate transfers Shakur Juiston (UNLV) and Anthony Mathis (New Mexico), along with Dante's late commitment.

"I've put a lot of thought into it, and I'm excited to tell you that next year I'm going to be attending college and playing basketball at the University of OR", he wrote. He will reclassify and join OR for the 2019-2020 season, meaning he's available to play this season.

OR lost three players (Bol Bol, Louis King, Kenny Wooten) early to the 2019 NBA Draft and two more (Victor Bailey, Miles Norris) to the transfer market. "The 6'11" big man attended Sunrise Christian (Kansas) Academy and has had a big summer, most recently being named MVP of the 2019 Peach Jam Classic after posting 22 points and 18 rebounds in the final.

On Tuesday, he locked in his future.
