Flo40 No. 1 RJ Barrett Commits To Duke

Flo40 No. 1 RJ Barrett Commits To Duke”

Duke, with the addition of Barrett, will likely be the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation.

Given Barrett's talent and poise, as well as his tendency to impact the game in so many ways, Duke fans may only get the opportunity to enjoy him for one season.

On Friday, Barrett announced his pick by standing up and revealing a No. 21 Duke Blue Devils uniform.

Barrett is a dominant physical force, with a 6-foot-10 wingspan to go along with an athletic 6-foot-6 frame. Although he is best known for slashing and scoring in the paint, Barrett can also shoot the 3-pointer when he is open. He turned in a signature performance in the semifinals against John Calipari's heavily favored United States team by finishing with 38 points, 13 rebounds and five assists in the win.

Barrett is regarded as the world's best player for his age, and last summer earned MVP honours in leading Canada to gold at the FIBA Under-19 World Cup.

Barrett's commitment gives Duke the No. 1 recruiting class for the third year in a row, joining fellow five-star recruits Cameron Reddish and Tre Jones.

Barrett, who reclassified from the 2019 recruiting class to 2018 in order to get to the National Basketball Association a year sooner, is already projected to be a top two pick in the 2019 draft.
