Jalen Johnson is currently ranked number 4 at the top 100 list of ESPN.
The 6-foot-8 forward is one of the few top prospects that have committed with the blue devils. Duke has also received a commitment from Jeremy Roach, a top-three ranked point guard in the country.
Jalen is known for his efficient shooting, off dribble shooting, and catch and shoot three-pointers.
In his announcement video, Jalen said, “Ever since the day I picked up a basketball, I have dreamt of playing this game at the highest level possible,”
He added, “Through all the blood, sweat and tears I’ve put into this game, the many obstacles I have overcome, many did not expect me to be in the position I’m in today. With that being said, I’m excited to announce that next year I’ll be playing for Coach K and Duke University.”
