Ahmaad Rorie commits to Oregon, per report

Are you not entertained? - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

WSU was a finalist for the 4-star guard, but he opted to become a Duck instead.

Washington State missed out on one of its biggest recruiting targets with 4-star point guard Ahmaad Rorie instead committing to Oregon, according to Eric Bossi or Rivals.com.

WSU began recruiting Rorie after he asked and received a release from his LOI from California. The Cougars have been after a number of guards, but Rorie appeared to be one of, if not the, No. 1 target. Rorie took a visit to Pullman and at one point some thought he was down to WSU and Washington. Oregon got in the mix later, as did a few other schools including Missouri, Oregon State and others. The Ducks were thought by many to be the frontrunner heading into the announcement and Rorie took a trip to Eugene earlier this week, after initially cancelling a visit. That proved to be correct, with Dana Altman winning the recruiting battle.

With Rorie now out of the picture, WSU still has two remaining scholarship spots, should the Cougars choose to fill them. Ernie Kent signed three players since taking over as head coach including guards Jackie Davis and Ny Redding. While frontcourt would appear to be a bigger area of need, with only Aaron Cheatum added, it's relatively thin pickings on the big man market right now. WSU has instead been pursing several guards and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Cougars add one or two more, even with Rorie not in the mix.
