Duke is still awaiting an NBA Draft decision from freshman guard Frank Jackson.
According to CBSSports’ Gary Parrish, the Blue Devils should be getting good news regarding rising sophomore Frank Jackson.
Parrish reported tonight that the 6-foot-3 guard is planning to return to Duke for his second season.
No announcement is imminent. But Frank Jackson is planning to return to Duke for his sophomore season, a source told @CBSSports.

Jackson averaged 10.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game as a freshman, seeing his playing time increase at the end of the season. Jackson also connected on 39.5 percent of his three-pointers (51-for-129).
Assuming Jackson is back, this is huge news for Duke. The Blue Devils also are welcoming Grayson Allen back for his senior season, and are the front-runners for five-star point guard Trevon Duval, who may or may not have visited campus today.
Additionally, Duke remains in contention for five-star swingman Kevin Knox. For a quick look at who may start for the Blue Devils in 2017-18, click here.
