Duke's 2018 recruiting class was the best in the nation. Despite Kentucky's addition of four 5-star recruits, the Blue Devils used a ridiculous class to top the list.

Ridiculous is putting it mildly. Duke landed the two best recruits in the country, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings, and that's not all.

Coach K and company also landed the No. 5 overall recruit who just so happens to be the most-hyped recruit in the class. High school dunking sensation Zion Williamson created highlight reels, and now he's headed to one of the most prestigious basketball schools in the country.

Williamson made headlines one Tuesday after Duke announced his official weight and height. The five-star recruit was listed at 6-foot-6, 275 pounds coming out of high school, but he hasn't stopped growing.

Williamson also boasts a 40-inch vertical, which is astounding for someone his size. Athleticism won't be lacking for the high school star as he makes his transition to the collegiate level.

Most of the questions around Williamson have to do with his shooting ability. We'll get a good look of the freshman during the upcoming 2018-19 season.
