Duke lands recruit
Wendell Carter, who was the top uncommitted prospect in the 2017 recruiting class, committed to the Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday.
Carter chose the Blue Devils over in-state schools Georgia and Georgia Tech, as well as Harvard. He has reportedly already signed a letter of intent.
Carter, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Pace Academy (Georgia), is ranked No. 3 in the ESPN 100 for 2017.
The top player at his position, Carter averaged 14.7 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks.
Carter is the third member of Duke’s 2017 recruiting class. He joins five-star guard Gary Trent Jr. (No. 8) and ESPN 100 wing Alex O’Connell (No. 88). Carter and Trent publicly discussed playing college basketball together several times, with Trent telling ESPN in June it was “100 percent.”
Duke is still eyeing the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, with Mike Krzyzewski targeting Mohamed Bamba (No. 4), Kevin Knox (No. 7) and Matt Coleman (No. 27) to round out the group.
