When Duke landed a commitment from five-star guard Jeremy Roach, the only concern was how he'd recover from a torn ACL. It's been roughly 10 months since the Paul VI Catholic product suffered a major injury, but it's evident that he's bounced back quickly.

Roach is considered one of the best recruits from his age group. In fact, 247Sports basketball analyst compares him to Raptors guard Kyle Lowry.

Torn ACLs can be tricky for some athletes, and there are multiple occasions where setbacks occur. However, that does not appear to be the case for Roach.

On Thursday, CTAB Hoops shared a video of Roach training for his senior year of high school. The Virginia native didn't appear to have any limitations when moving around the court.

Duke's coaching staff has to be encouraged that Roach is working out extensively at this stage in his recovery.

Jeremy Roach is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 17 overall recruit and No. 3 point guard in his class. He holds offers from other powerhouses, such as Kentucky and North Carolina, but ultimately chose Duke.

The Blue Devils already have a pair of five-star commits for their 2020 recruiting class, as Jalen Johnson will join Roach in Durham.
