Who's Projected To Land The Canadian Recruit Who Dominated Team USA

Here's who's projected to land the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2019 class.

Team USA fell to Canada in the FIBA U-19 World Cup over the weekend.

The Americans were dominated by one Canadian player - R.J. Barrett.

Barrett, a small-forward who plays high school in the states for Montverde Academy in Florida, is the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2019 class. He scored 38 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out five assists in the stunning upset over Team USA, which hadn't lost since 2011.

Unless the NBA changes its requirements for the draft, Barrett is going to be playing college basketball for (at least) the 2019-20 season. Who's he going to play for? Right now, Duke is seen as the favorite.

There's a long way to go with his recruitment, though, so stay tuned.
