Jordan Bell, a 6-foot-7 forward out of Long Beach Poly, has been cleared to join the Oregon Ducks basketball team. Bell was a four-star recruit in the class of 2013 and had offers from Auburn, UCONN, Texas, and Washington.

Bell told Duck Territory that he’ll be arriving in Eugene before the Ducks host Morgan State on Dec. 29. He also said he’s been working hard with a personal trainer to keep his game sharp.

The addition of Bell, assuming he doesn’t redshirt this season, would be a huge boost for an Oregon team already ranked in the top-fifteen nationally. 247Sports listed him as the 13th-best power forward in his class, and he has a reputation of being an athletic shot-blocker and a strong rebounder. If the Ducks hope to contend with the likes of UCLA and Arizona for the Pac-12 title, Bell’s inside presence could prove beneficial.

The Oregon Ducks, 7-0 on the season, will be on the road Sunday taking on Marshall Henderson and the Ole Miss Rebels.
