Detroit senior guard Jason Calliste has decided to commit to Dana Altman and the Oregon Ducks, according to CBS reporter Jon Rothstein.
THe 6-foot-2 guard averaged 14.4 points, 3.3 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game last season for the Detroit Titans. Calliste will be eligible to play right away at Oregon after graduating this past spring.
Calliste told the Detroit Free-Press why he decided to leave the Titans earlier this month,“I needed to go, I was done it with,’’ Calliste said in the story. “I gave four years and I gave all that I could give. It’s time to move on. I’ve been there for so long. I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly. I know there’s always going to be bad situations, but I just felt like it could have been a better situation, especially with the coaches that had to leave.’’
The Ducks are still waiting word on Houston transfer Joseph Young and his eligibility this season. If deemed eligible Young will be a junior with two years to play 2 years, if he is not eligible he must sit this season and have his senior year available next year.
Calliste acts as a safety valve for the Ducks if Young isn't cleared, and only makes Oregon's depth greater if Young is cleared.
