Oregon is getting back at least one member of its backcourt next season.
De’Vion Harmon will return for his second year in the program, the guard announced Thursday night.

In his first year with the Ducks, Harmon put up nearly 11 points a night to go with 2.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He shot 42% from the floor and a career-high 37% from 3-point range. A starter for 34 of the Ducks’ 35 contests, Harmon provided Oregon with another creative guard to give Jacob Young and Will Richardson some help. He had a cold spell winding down the final month of the regular season and then into the Pac-12 Tournament, but played well in Oregon’s two-game run at the NIT.
With Richardson unavailable as he battled illness, Harmon scored 15.5 points a game while shooting north of 50% from the field and connecting on half of his triples.
With Young out of eligibility and the Ducks still waiting to learn of Richardson’s decision—he can come back for a super senior season—Harmon gives some veteran experience to a backcourt that could be much younger next year.
The Ducks are bringing in a top-20 recruiting class this offseason anchored by a pair of 5-stars and the top junior college scorer in the country last year. Guards Tyrone Williams and 5-star freshman Dior Johnson could both play large roles in the offense. Harmon’s return should give the Ducks some stability to work through the growing pains.
