Coach K gets his point guard: Five-star prospect Trevon Duval commits to Duke
Duval is the sixth Class of 2017 prospect to commit to the Blue Devils
Five-star point guard Trevon Duval publicly committed to Duke early Monday, giving the Blue Devils the elite point guard they've lacked since Tyus Jones left following the 2015 season that resulted in a national championship.
Duval is the fifth-best prospect in the Class of 2017, according to 247 Sports. The 6-foot-3 McDonald's All-American picked Duke over offers from Arizona and Kansas.
Duke's Twitter account responded to the announcement this way:
Duval is the sixth Class of 2017 prospect to commit to Duke -- joining five-star recruits Wendell Carter and Gary Trent Jr., four-star recruits Alex O'Connell and Jordan Tucker and three-star recruit Jordan Goldwire. The Blue Devils' class is currently ranked second nationally, according to 247 Sports.
Duke's likely starting lineup next season:
- G: Trevon Duval
- G: Grayson Allen
- G: Gary Trent Jr.
- F: Wendell Carter
- F: Marquis Bolden
