Well... in an exhibition against Western Oregon, Okoro went for 16/10.

I expect that against that kind of competition, but I think he'll have a good frosh season. Kid is going to be good by the time he is done there. I'm hoping it will land us a home and home with the Ducks.

Okoro is about to get some more PT. Bol Bol, the freshman sensation, has been shut down for the season with a foot injury.

He is just about to lead Oregon to a PAC 12 title. As the 6 seed. Huge. Stats not there but all the commentary was about his leadership skills as a freshman.

He did lose his starting spot for a while after Bol Bol went down. He started then he didn't for a stretch. Don't know what that was about.
LET'S WIN THIS GAME!

Bol Bol will be going pro after this year, so the starting spot should be up for grabs again next year. He averaged about 19 minutes down the stretch, so I don't see him transferring anywhere.

That said if he doesn't I'd be more than happy to have him here learning from Reese.

This kid should transfer to ISU and take us back to the NCAA Tournament. He doesn’t play much at Oregon and he would be a major factor in the Valley.

When he is back in town - he visits my wife's classroom. He gave her an Oregon T-Shirt. The kids in her class are amazed at how big he is.

Yea looks like he lost his starting spot about 6 games ago to freshman Chandler Lawson and overall getting less minutes. Okoro would be a good get.

0% chance of him coming to ISU. 75% he transfers. 100% chance he ends up at a P5+Big East school. Scientific numbers.

He isn’t seeing the floor in what many believe is an iffy Power 5 conference, why do you think he will better himself moving to an even stronger conference?

I didnt say stronger school than oregon though. A place like ole Miss, Vanderbilt, etc. Those lower tier P5+1 schools. Hes a good rebounder. He will go to a school well higher than us. Even if it's just the AAC like Wichita State, SMU, UCF. Hell, he'll go to Northern Iowa or Loyola before he comes to this clusterf***. You have to realize Oregon has a lot of players that can play the same role as Okoro. He's the odd man out. Not every school is like that. He can find a lower tier P5+1 with a need. If he could score a bit more he'd be really good. Offense is his main weakness.
