The national recruiting services have updated their class of 2017 basketball recruiting rankings today. Here’s where each of Duke’s 2017 commits ranks.
247Sports creates a ‘composite’ ranking, using its own rankings along with ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Those were updated for the class of 2017 today. Here is how the rankings shook out for each of the three players joining the Duke Blue Devils next season:
Five-star PF Wendell Carter (Atlanta, GA):
Five-star SG Gary Trent Jr. (Napa, CA):
Four-star SG Alex O’Connell (Alpharetta, GA):
With just three players in this class so far, it is very likely that the Blue Devils aren’t done. Coach K and company are after a number of the top players still available in the class, and based on how the program has recruited over the last few years, it seems very likely that they’ll land at least one more big name. As currently constituted, Duke’s three-man class ranks No. 5 in the country and No. 1 in the ACC.
