    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Oregon completed a big weekend by adding 6-foot-7 former Rice forward Arsalan Kazemi.

    The Ducks also landed twins Tyrell and Tyree Robinson, who reportedly will play both basketball and football at the school.

    Kazemi  averaged 12.4 points and 10.3 rebounds last season at Rice and reportedly also considered Kentucky, Florida, Cincinnati, Texas and Ohio State.

    His transfer was first reported by the Eugene (Ore.) Register-Guard.

    Kazemi, the first native of Iran to play Division 1 college basketball, will reportedly seek a waiver to play immediately. He joins 6-11 former junior college big man Waverly Austin, who wasn’t academically eligible at South Florida.

    Tyrell Robinson is a 6-4 small forward who also plays outside linebacker, while the 6-4 Tyree is a shooting guard who also plays safety.
