After much speculation on where he'll play college basketball, five-star recruit Matthew Hurt announced his commitment to Duke. His list of schools included other prestigious programs like North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas.

Hurt's decision to join the Blue Devils makes them the top recruiting class in the country. Now, head coach Mike Krzyzewski will have the necessary talent to make a run toward the national championship.

Even though it's not too shocking that Hurt opted to go to Durham over Lexington, Kentucky radio host Michael Bennett believes it's the wrong move on his part.

Bennett didn't hold back at all on social media, saying "Another win for Duke, but another mistake for a recruit."

The argument he is making is all about whether or not Duke can prepare him for the NBA Draft. However, it's clear that the program has sent a plethora of prospects to the association in years past.

Here is his full controversial post on Hurt:

There is no debating John Calipari's resume when it comes to sending players to the NBA, but Coach K has proven to be just as successful. After all, the Blue Devils will have three players selected in the top 10 for this season alone.

Outside of Bennett, it'll be hard to find someone criticize Hurt for going to a school with such rich history on the hardwood.
