Oregon Ducks sign 4-star basketball recruit Trevor Manuel

November 19, 2014

Trevor Manuel, a four-star power forward from Lansing, Michigan, who played his junior season at prep basketball factory Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team next season, head coach Dana Altman announced.

“Trevor is a very talented young man who will not only fill one of our needs in the front court, but has a tremendous upside,” said Altman. “He comes from a terrific family and is really just starting to scratch the surface of his potential as a basketball player.”

Manuel is known for his long frame and ability to dominate on the defensive side of the ball, while also being able to knock down mid-range jump shots.

Manuel received four stars and a rating of 93 from 247 Sports. He was also the No. 90 player nationally and the No. 25 power forward according to 247 Sports. 

ESPN.com also rated Manuel a four-star recruit with a grade of 80, and graded him as the third-ranked player coming out of the state of Michigan.

At Oak Hill Academy, the 6-9, 215-pound Manuel helped that school finish the year 41-4 and advance to the championship game of the Dick’s National High School Tournament at Madison Square Garden.  He will play his senior season at Everett High School in Lansing.

Before that, he won a Michigan state title as a freshman with Sexton High School in Lansing, and earned Class B All-State honors as a sophomore after averaging 12.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
