Oregon picked up highly-regarded big man Nathan Bittle on Tuesday, beating out West Coast basketball powers Gonzaga and UCLA for the 6-foot-11 center's services.

Bittle is ranked No. 8 overall by ESPN for the class of 2021 and the No. 2 center. The 247 Sports Composite has Bittle ranked No. 17 overall in the 2021 class.

"The way they treat the players was important to me," Bittle said, according to 247Sports. "All the coaches treat their players with respect. They're basketball fathers and coaches at the same time who care about you. It's a great experience."

Bittle, who is from Prolific Prep in Napa, Calif., has inside-out capabilities and reportedly has solid 3-point range.
