247Sports has rolled out updated site rankings for the 2020 basketball recruiting class. Duke basketball's pair of blue-chip recruits in the class both saw their rankings shift a bit.

Early on, the Blue Devils' class is ranked fifth in the country. It is the second-ranked group in the ACC as of today.

Back in May, Jeremy Roach became the first Duke commit in the class. The point guard has taken a slight dip in the rankings, due to an injury keeping him from being further evaluated.

It wasn't a huge drop, though. Roach went from No. 17 to No. 18 overall. He remains No. 17 in the site's composite rankings, which weigh in the other major recruiting sites.

From 247:

Before his injury the Virginia floor general was considered one of the two best point guards in the country. Since getting hurt it's been very hard to evaluation Roach's game and what progression there's been to it. The 6-foot-2, 170 pound guard is expected to make a full recovery and his recruitment was certainly not dampened in any way by the injury as he picked Duke over a who's who of blue blooded college programs.

Last month, he was joined by talented wing Jalen Johnson out of Wisconsin. He's taken a slight jump for No. 7 to No. 4 in the country.

Jalen Johnson was the first top 10 player in the class to make his college decision and picked the Blue Devils over a number of high major programs. The 6-foot-8, 215 pound forward actually grew up in a family of North Carolina fans but cited his relationship with associate head coach Jon Scheyer as a defining reason for selecting the Blue Devils. For his senior season Johnson has transferred to IMG Academy in Florida where he'll play a national high school schedule.

Duke basketball has a number of other prominent targets, and could put together yet another historic class. No matter how things shake out, Mike Krzyzewski's class is off to a tremendous start.
