Here’s where things stand for the star freshman.
Duke got some great news today. Star junior guard Grayson Allen will be returning to school for his senior season.
Now, all eyes with the Blue Devils turn to freshman Frank Jackson.
What’s the star freshman guard going to do?
“No decision has been made” as of yet, according to a recent report.
From Duke re Frank Jackson: "No decision has been made."

Jackson could leave for the NBA Draft, but most expect him to return. He’s not listed in the first round in any significant mock drafts. Jackson averaged 10.9 points and 1.7 assists per game for Duke last season.
Duke also awaits decisions from a couple of the top recruits in the country. Trevon Duval, the No. 1 point guard in the class, and Kevin Knox, a five-star small forward, are both considering the Blue Devils. Duval is seen as a heavy Duke lean and, while the future of Knox is less clear, Coach K’s program is a serious candidate for him, too.
The Blue Devils will likely be a preseason top 10 team heading into the 2017-18 season.
