Duke Basketball has announced that it has landed eight commitment in the 2018-2019 class, including a commitment from the nation’s No. 1 overall recruit, the 5-10 guard from Miami.
The announcement comes just two days after the Blue Devils made a second-round move with the second pick of the 2018 NBA Draft.
Duke also announced that the Blue Devil has landed four more commitments, including four in the 2019 class.
“Duke Basketball has a long tradition of recruiting at the highest levels,” said John R. Beilein, head coach of the Blue Raiders.
“We have an incredible group of players committed from across the country and we look forward to adding some of the best basketball players to our team this fall.”
The Blue Devils’ 2018 class is comprised of 10 players (two in the class of 2019), four of whom are expected to sign with the team this summer.
Two of those four players will be freshmen.
