3-star Ben Carter picks Ducks


ESPN.com has confirmed that power forward Ben Carter (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman) verbally committed to Oregon on Sunday. The 6-foot-8, 215 pound Carter chose the Ducks over offers from San Diego State, Utah, UNLV and USC.

ESPN.com Recruiting Coordinator Joel Francisco describes Carter as a "versatile 4-man who has some junkyard dog to him as well. He should make an impact due to his skill level and savvy."

The 3-star Carter is the second recruit to pick Oregon in the last week. Point guard Dominic Artis (Richmond, Calif./Findlay College Prep) committed last Monday.
