Ducks Land Forward Olu Ashaolu

The Ducks have landed the Louisiana Tech transfer Olu Ashaolu who will be looked on to bolster the front line of Oregon next season.  Click the link above to see one of Ashaolu's explosive dunks.  He showed a real talent for rebounding and he is an explosive athlete.  He will make up for the loss of Jovan Catron and may even be an improvement over the beloved Duck big man.  Olu averaged 14 points and almost 10 boards last season for the Louisiana Tech, and should form a formidable pair with fellow new addition 6'7 forward Carlos Emory and the incumbent 6'8 Jeremy Jacob.  Although Ashaolu is still a  bit undersized for a post player he has long arms and the leaping ability to go up against larger players.  He is eligible immediately and should crack the starting line up on day one.
