Jason Calliste, Welcome To Oregon
Dana Altman is once again at it for the Oregon Ducks with multiple reports coming out that Altman has landed senior guard transfer Jason Calliste out of Detroit Mercy. Castille will fill up the last remaining scholarship spot for the Ducks unless someone decides to transfer away from the Ducks in the immediate future.
Castille follows under the same rules as new Duck Mike Moser does with regards to transfer eligibility. Castille has already graduated from Detroit Mercy but still has a year of eligibility remaining, thus allowing him to transfer immediately and play in this upcoming season.
More than likely, Castille was brought in as insurance for the Ducks with Joseph Young’s eligibility for this upcoming season still under review by the NCAA. Still, if Young is deemed eligible, Castille will see plenty of action for the Ducks that now have arguably one of the deepest back courts in the NCAA.
Last season, Calliste led Detroit Mercy with 73 three-pointers. In 33 games at Detroit Mercy, Calliste averaged 14.4 PPG, 3.3 APG, 3.1 RPG, and 1.3 SPG.
