Oregon coach Dana Altman is well known for his ability to recruit graduate transfers to Eugene. He has done wonders with the likes of Chris Boucher, Dylan Ennis, Elijah Brown, MiKyle McIntosh and Joe Young, just to name a few.
Altman is very interested in bringing in a couple of graduate transfers for the 2018-19 season. The Ducks have the No. 2 ranked recruiting class in the country, but could benefit from some experienced players. Apparently Altman has set his sights on University of South Dakota guard Matt Mooney and has offered a scholarship to him, per Jake Weingarten of Scoop Duck.

According to 247Sports’ Matt Prehm, Oregon had previously had contract with Mooney. He averaged 18.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.0 steals last season.
Oregon is far from the only school chasing Mooney. He is actively being recruited by Creighton, Indiana, Northwestern, TCU and Texas Tech, among others.
