There's no shortage of top recruits committing to Duke, and it appears the Blue Devils have a chance to add another five-star talent in the coming weeks in Isaiah Stewart.

Stewart has visited Kentucky, Syracuse and Michigan State over the past few months. Although he's had nothing but generous words for each program, he'll eventually have to separate one from the pack.

Luckily for the Blue Devils, they'll have a golden opportunity to leave an outstanding impression on Stewart before he makes a decision.

Not only is Stewart one of the best high school basketball players in the nation, but he also blogs for USA Today. Clearly, he's excited for his trip to Durham, North Carolina.

From his latest post at USA Today:

Duke is gonna be my last visit and that’s this weekend so I’m looking forward to that. I’m mostly looking forward to hanging out with the guys and just taking in what it would be like to go there.

I already have a great relationship with Coach K and the staff so I want to get the players’ take on everything.

I won’t be able to sign during the early period, but it’s all good. I can still commit. I’m not worried about not being able to sign. I would like to go ahead and make a commitment after the last visit, but it’s all about how I’m feeling and if I feel like I’m ready.

Another important note from his blog was that he'll commit after his final visit, if he feels ready.

He's currently the No. 6 recruit in the entire country, per 247Sports.

Regardless of which prestigious program Stewart chooses, he's got all the tools to succeed at the next level.
