Five-star recruit Dior Johnson has committed to Oregon, he told ESPN's Jonathan Givony on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-3 point guard is the 15th-ranked prospect on the ESPN 100 for 2022.

Johnson told Givony that Kentucky and Alabama were also in the running for his services.

"I decided to commit to Oregon because of the great relationships I have built with the coaching staff," Johnson said. "Coach (Chris) Crutchfield and coach (Dana) Altman welcomed me with open arms from Day 1. We were able to get on the same page quickly as they have built a great plan for me to succeed."

Johnson is the Ducks' first commitment in next year's class. Four-star 2022 prospect Zion Cruz is also considering Oregon.

Johnson originally committed to Syracuse in February 2020 but walked back on that decision last November.
