As a big fan of both the South Medford Panthers and the University of Oregon Ducks this is good news. The following is from the Register Guard:
This just in: E.J. Singler of South Medford High School said he verbally committed to the Ducks (basketball) during his weekend visit.
The 6-foot-6 Singler is the first recruit for the Ducks in this 2009 recruiting class. He’s the younger brother of Kyle Singler, a sophomore at Duke, and a member of quite an athletic family from the southern Oregon area.
Singler is also a receiver on the South Medford football team, but he said he won’t play football after his final high school season.
My wife and I have had season tickets for South Medford basketball and football for a number of years and we have been impressed by the athletic ability and sportsmanship of both Singler brothers.It will be fun watching this future Duck play his final basketball season for the Panthers. Let's hope he will be able to play at least one season in the new basketball arena Oregon is set to start construction of this November. It will replace venerable McArthur Court. Go Panthers... Go Ducks!
