Oregon Lands 4-Star Aussie

Oregon Lands 4-Star Aussie

Four-star point guard Morgan Yaeger of Forestville, Australia, a member of the class of 2016, is off the board and headed to Oregon. Yaeger, who just started to see her recruiting take off, picked the Ducks after a video-call with Oregon head coach Kelly Graves. Yaeger was a member of Australia’s U17 national team last summer.

For Oregon, the addition of Yaeger gives them an explosive lead guard with the ability to play on and off the ball.  She is a talented scorer who can make shots from the perimeter, attack the rim, and elevate well enough to finish at the rim.  Last month our Prospects Nation staff was in Australia to see Yaeger play. Here is the evaluation of her game.

Yeager was very impressive with her play here this weekend.  She is an offensive-minded combo guard that can play with and without the ball in her hands. Her strength is playing off the bounce and attacking defenders with her advanced ball handling moves.  She is a very capable finisher in the lane and is crafty with her finishes as she uses floaters, runners, and an array of other types of shots.  Yaeger is also a very good perimeter shooter who will force defenders to guard her honest behind the line.  Playing in the pick and roll and being asked to make quality decisions with the ball in her hands is also something Yaeger showed that she can do.

Yaeger’s addition to Oregon’s 2016 class gives the Ducks four, four-star prospects for the class of 2016.  Yaeger is set to join Jayde Woods of Yorba Linda, Calif., Sierra Campisano of San Diego, Calif., and Mallory McGuire of Reno, Nev., in Oregon’s 2016 class.

In the last two seasons since Graves and his staff have been on the Eugene campus, the Ducks have been able to add key talent and make improvements to their roster.  The 2016 class looks to be another step in this direction.
