- Oregon watched Jamal Murray ('16 PG) on Wednesday. According to several recruiting analysts, it's only a matter of time until he reclassifies to 2015--Oregon and Kentucky would then be his strongest suitors. Villanova transfer Dylan Ennis would probably be Illinois-bound if Murray commits to Oregon.
