Oregon State adds point guard Malcolm Duvivier late

Seeking to overcome the loss of transfer point guard Ahmad Starks and not signing former commit LJ Westbrook, the Oregon State Beavers added a point guard recruit for the 2013 recruiting cycle on Thursday, landing Canadian Malcolm Duvivier. His mother posted a Tweet with the news.

The 6′-2″ lead guard was a 2014 recruit until his intention to join the Beavers was known. He was considered by Rivals to be a borderline top 100 recruit in that class, so he could be an important addition for Oregon State.

It isn’t as if Oregon State has a point guard set in stone for next season, so it’s entirely conceivable that Duvivier will compete for immediate playing time. The Beavers also have Hallice Cooke of St. Anthony (NJ) in the class, but he’s more of a combo guard.

Oregon State had Westbrook committed in this class to be the point guard of the future for quite some time. Westbrook, a native of nearby Salem, Oregon, decommitted from the Beavers and is playing a prep school year at Lee Academy (MA) next year.

Given Duvivier’s status as a member of several Canadian national teams, he has experience beyond his years and could be an option for an Oregon State team trying to find success under coach Craig Robinson.
