Oregon adds elite JC center Kavell Bigby-Williams

For a second straight season, Oregon has dipped into the junior college ranks and plucked out one of the nation’s elite post prospects. 6′-11″ Kavell Bigby-Williams, a native of England, announced his committed to Oregon on Sunday.

After originally inking with Montana State out of England, where he’s played on several national team programs, Bigby-Williams went on to star at Gillette College, which plays in the same league incoming senior Chris Boucher starred in while in the junior college circuit.

A first-team All-American selection, Bigby-Williams posted yeoman numbers as a sophomore, scoring 22.5 points per game, to go with 11.8 rebounds and 4.7 blocked shots. Blessed with tremendous shotblockers Jordan Bell and Boucher already on the roster, Oregon will have rim protection for days next year.

Bigby-Williams joins top 100 high school prospects point guard Payton Pritchard, wing Keith Smith, and center M.J. Cage in a top-20 national haul for head coach Dana Altman and the Ducks.
