Oregon women's basketball: Ducks sign No. 6 recruiting class


EUGENE — Oregon women's basketball coach Kelly Graves and his staff put together the No. 6 recruiting class in the country, according to ESPN, as six players signed national letters of intent on Wednesday, the first day of the signing period.

The Ducks signed guards Jayde Woods (Los Angeles) and Morgan Yaeger (Adelaide, Australia) plus forwards Sierra Campisano (San Diego), Mallory McGwire (Reno, Nevada), Ruthy Hebard (Fairbanks, Alaska) and Lydia Giomo (Seattle).

"Today is a great day in the history of of the University of Oregon women's basketball program," Graves said in a realease.

"When my staff and I set out on this journey in the spring of 2014, we collectively felt the 2016 class could be a special class, one that would help define the program for years to come. Today, we are realizing the first step in making that a reality.

"... Each one of these young women are 'team-first' players, hard workers, dedicated to improving, goal driven and excited about helping the Ducks become one of the nation's elite programs. Each one of these young women are outstanding students, active participants in their communities and the kind of individuals that will be proud representatives of our university and basketball program."

The group features four ESPN top-100 players, four forwards all 6-foot-3 or taller and a pair of guards.

Campisano, the No. 14 ranked recruit in the nation, is the highest rated prospect to ever sign with the Ducks. Hebard (No. 41), McGwire (No. 59) and Woods (No. 96) are also ranked in the top 100.
