The Duke Blue Devils are looking to build a Duke basketball roster to contend for a national championship next season. The Blue Devils haven't won a title since 2015, which feels like a drought given raising banners is the standard for Duke basketball. Head coach Jon Scheyer has retooled his Duke basketball lineup with a handful of incoming freshmen set to make a difference this season. With that Duke basketball recruiting class pieced together with key returners and collegiate transfers, Duke is widely considered an early preseason top-10 team for 2024-25.

Anchored by No. 1 overall prospect Cooper Flagg, Duke has the No. 1 college basketball recruiting class in 2024 with four five-star prospects.

Duke basketball roster departures 

Scheyer will have essentially a new roster for this upcoming season as the Blue Devils lost seven players to the 2024-25 college basketball transfer portal, two more to the NBA Draft, and two who ran out of eligibility. The team's top four scorers are all gone, including All-American Kyle Filipowski (16.4 ppg), as well as four-year starter Jeremy Roach (14 ppg). Filipowski is off to the NBA Draft, while Roach has transferred to Baylor.

Jared McCain (14.3 ppg) is also off to the pros, while Mark Mitchell (11.6 ppg) is headed to Missouri. That means just two players who scored a point for Duke last season are returning in Tyrese Proctor and Caleb Foster -- neither of which were upperclassmen. While Duke did get some fifth-year seniors from the transfer portal, Scheyer will be tasked with blending together all of these moving parts, but given the talent he's working with, it's a good problem to have. Join The Devil's Den to see the latest on all of Duke's roster changes

Duke basketball news, roster

Roster turnover is inevitable in college basketball and Duke lost Kyle Filipowski and Jeremy Roach from last year's squad that made it to the Elite Eight. However, Scheyer's 2024 recruiting class is among the best at any program in recent college basketball history. According to 247Sports, there are four five-star and two four-star recruits in the class, all of which rank among the top 51 players in the nation. Flagg is the No. 1 ranked player in the class and he'll be joined by Khaman Maluach, who's ranked No. 3.

The Blue Devils will also return some experience in the backcourt in guards Tyrese Proctor and Caleb Foster, giving Duke the experience and youthfulness needed to make some noise next season. Scheyer's signing class also received a transfer portal commitment from Syracuse forward Maliq Brown, who earned All-ACC Defensive Team honors as a sophomore. Join The Devil's Den to see the latest Duke basketball roster news
