Last month, 2020 four-star forward Henry Coleman named his top five colleges, with Duke making the final cut. He recently started making his official visits, and had Coach K’s office at the top of the list.
In an interview with 247Sports, Coleman recapped the experience of visiting Duke and called it “a humbling experience” as well as “a great visit.” He also got a chance to play with some of the Duke players and called them “genuinely great guys.”
“It was good, it was a humbling experience, just talking with Coach K and just a guy with that magnitude and has so much knowledge about the game was really cool… Overall, it was a great visit. I talked with the players and they were genuinely great guys. I played a little bit with them so overall it was a great visit.”
247Sports rates Coleman as the No. 39 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 7 power forward in the nation, and the No. 5 prospect from the state of Virginia.
Duke is joined by Michigan, NC State, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech on the list Coleman released in early August.

But despite the stiff competition for Coleman’s commitment, Duke fans probably don’t need to feel nervous.
247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions have listed Duke as the overwhelming favorite to land him.
