Five-star 2021 recruit Nathan Bittle won't be straying too far from home.

The second-ranked center and eighth overall prospect on next year's ESPN 100 is staying in-state to play for Oregon, he announced through his Instagram on Tuesday.

Bittle chose the Ducks over Gonzaga and Pac-12 rivals Arizona and UCLA.

The 6-foot-11 big man averaged 25.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 4.5 blocks during his junior year of high school.

Bittle is Oregon's first commitment in next year's class. The school is also in the running for four-star 2021 recruits Hunter Sallis and Frank Kepnang.
