Houston wing transfer Joseph Young has reportedly chosen to continue his college career at Oregon, despite having a tentative visit scheduled for this weekend at Arizona.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman said Young's father confirmed the decision. Young's high school coach, Greg Wise, also told the Star via text today that Young called him to say he was headed to Oregon.

Chris Emens, the agent for Hill and Mark Lyons, said he and Lyons are still considering free-agent options. Lyons is expected to at least gain an invitation to an NBA summer-league team.

Ball State coach James Whitford, who worked with Hill as UA's former associate  head coach, said it was great to see Solomon Hill rewarded with a first-round pick after working hard to transform his game.

Oklahoma City assistant GM said the Thunder was "really intrigued" by Grant Jerrett. (see the entry for 12:10 a.m. in this blog post).
