Five-star forward Kwame Evans Jr. committed to Oregon on Tuesday, choosing the Ducks over Arizona, Auburn, and Kentucky. Evans is one of the finest prospects in the Class of 2023. Evans is regarded as the No. 3 power forward in his class and is listed as the No. 7 prospect overall by 247Sports.
Evans is a 6-foot-9, 200-pound athletic four with good ball skills who can defend smaller guards and make 3-pointers. He is the No. 2 ranked Oregon commitment in the 247Sports era, trailing only 2018 center Bol Bol.

In the 2023 recruiting class for Oregon, Evans joins four-star point guard Jackson Shelstad as head coach Dana Altman, in his 13th season, builds on a successful recent recruiting streak. Kelly Ware, a five-star center who concluded the 2022 recruiting cycle rated No. 7 in his class, is welcomed by the Ducks to their 2022–23 squad.
Nathan Bittle, a five-star front-court prospect from the Class of 2021 who will be returning for his sophomore year, was also signed by Altman.
This is Oregon’s sixth commitment from a five-star recruit in the previous seven recruiting classes. The lessons from Evans’ dedication are listed below.
Evans is from Baltimore, although he represents Montverde Academy in Florida. He competes on the summer circuit for Team Durant. Because of his versatility, 247Sports director of scouting Adam Finkelstein refers to him as a “combo forward.” The complete analysis of Evans by Finkelstein.
In the 247Sports Team Rankings for the 2023 recruiting class, the Ducks rose from No. 32 to No. 5 after receiving Evans’ commitment, and they might not be done yet. According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, Mookie Cook, the fourth-ranked recruit in the class, is leaning toward attending Oregon.
Cook had formerly committed to the Ducks before he changed his mind on June 30. Travis Branham of 247Sports, however, stated that Evans and Cook are enthusiastic about teaming up at the next level.
Evans joins No. 2 Justin Edwards (Kentucky), No. 3 Xavier Booker (Michigan State), No. 5 Mackenzie Mgbako (Duke), No. 6 Matas Buzelis (G League Ignite), and No. 8 Sean Stewart as the sixth player listed in the top-10 in the 2023 class to make an announcement (Duke). No. 1 DJ Wagner, No. 4 Mookie Cook, No. 9 Isaiah Collier, and No. 10 Mikey Williams are still undecided.
