The Nevada Wolf Pack men’s basketball team has added former Oregon State signee Cameron Oliver to the team and he will join the squad for the upcoming season. Wolf Pack first-year head coach Eric Musselman announced Oliver’s addition, which was reported by Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.
“Our coaching staff is very excited to announce the addition of Cameron Oliver,” head coach Eric Musselman said. “Cameron has superior athleticism and ability to be a force at the rim on both ends of the floor. He is a Sacramento/Bay area product and his family is excited to be within driving distance to watch him play.”
A former star at Sacramento’s Grant Union High School, Oliver was committed to the Beavers and planned on joining the program last season, but changed his mind once Craig Robinson was fired and replaced with former Montana coach Wayne Tinkle. Since he sat out last year, he is immediately eligible to play for Musselman in 2015-16.
With the Wolf Pack looking to make some noise in the Mountain West with Musselman at the helm and thus earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007, look for Oliver to get significant minutes fairly quickly.
