AP Photo/Steve YeaterWith his AAU teammates Tyrell and Tyree Robinson already committed to Oregon, Aaron Gordon is getting a heavy sales job from the Ducks.The Ducks recently lost out on combo guard Darin Johnson of Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon, when he committed to the rival Washington Huskies. The Ducks are still in search of talent for the Class of 2013 and have their sights set on two of the elite forwards on the West Coast. One of them has already visited and the other will be in town over the weekend.
Six-foot-7, 210-pound Jordan Bell of Long Beach (Calif.) Polytechnic has a top four of Oregon, UConn, Kansas State and Auburn and will be in Eugene for a visit this weekend. Bell has long said that UConn is his "dream school" and he would commit on the spot if he receives a long-awaited offer from the Big East power.
It doesn't look as if an offer is on the way from the Huskies, which puts Oregon -- another long-time favorite -- in the driver's seat for the Long Beach Poly star. Bell plans to wait things out and see if that coveted UConn offer comes his way. He likely won't commit until late 2012 or even wait until the spring, but a good visit to Oregon would go a long way in solidifying the Ducks as his favorite should things stay the same.
