wishlist entry may spell bad news for the Blue Devils.
In April, shooting guard Cassius Stanley added the Blue
Devils to his finalists less than a month before becoming
jersey-c-3.html final piece to the 2019 20 Duke
basketball roster. As a result, Dukies learned the easy way
that a late addition is typically only promising for the
Flip the calendar forward to July.
Duke fans may have no choice but to take a refresher lesson
in the same subject as it applies to another shooting
This time, the hard way.
Per a Wednesday tweet from Rivals Corey Evans, Brandon
Boston Jr. the No. 10 overall 2020 prospect on the
247Sports Composite and a longtime priority for coach Mike
Krzyzewski added Oregon to what was his final four Duke
Ryan Kelly Jersey, Kentucky, Auburn, and Florida.
There must be a reason for the sudden addition from the 6
foot 7, 185 pound Atlantan, whose Norcross High Schools
nickname is the Blue Devils and whose game combined with
his frame generates a near spitting image of former one and
done Duke guard/forward Brandon Ingram like Ingram, Boston
is a slick playmaker and smooth shooter whose strength is
his length but whose glaring weakness is his physical
So is an anatidaephobia outbreak in Durham inevitable
leading up to a Boston announcement that may come as soon
as the end of July?
Could be. Or the Blue Devils could be left suffering a
newfound fear of Cats instead.
The same Evans tweet broke the news of Bostons plan to
take an official visit to Kentucky starting July 25; as
those who follow recruiting have learned, a last minute
visit oftentimes translates into the host school hearing
good news soon after the visits conclusion.
So what happened?
How did Coach K and his staff, who hosted Boston alongside
his buddy and now Duke commit Jalen Johnson for Countdown
to Craziness last October, fall from the consensus favorite
inside the 247Sports Crystal Ball a few months ago to
seemingly a bottom three candidate in the present?
Not sure. And not certain this latest news necessarily
guarantees doom for Duke.
With commitments from small forward Johnson and point guard
Jeremy Roach potentially perfect facilitators to
complement Bostons wealth of scoring currently giving
the Blue Devils the nations far and away top 2020 class,
fans should be able to quickly shrug off one miss. However
c-4.html, with possibly as few as four or five scholarship
players returning to Durham following next season, Duke
cant afford too many strikeouts.
On a positive note, though, two Crystal Ball picks pegging
Boston as a Blue Devil came in last week
5.html, the day before Johnsons pledge, meaning Kentucky
now owns only a 4 3 lead over Duke among the seven picks
that are in so far. That being said, both recent picks in
favor of the Blue Devils came from within The Devils Den
Adam Rowe and Chad Lykins.
Plus, Duck picks could very well start flying in.
Duke basketball fans can still hold out hope the Blue
Devils bag a Boston commitment based on the fact his name
has long appeared in talks of a package deal that Johnson
and Roach have now initiated. But this may be Dukes last
hope to land the five star who has again turned heads by
leading his Nike EYBL team, AOT Running Rebels Ga. , to a 2
0 start at Peach Jam this week.
Brotherhood salesmen Johnson and Roach have work to do.
