RJ Barret, Canadian basketball phenom, to play college ball at Duke

RJ Barret, Canadian basketball phenom, to play college ball at Duke

Barrett picked the Blue Devils over Kentucky and Oregon. Now it's RJ Barrett, a 6-foot-6 wing who hails from Canada.

Barrett's recruiting process accelerated on July 31, when he announced that he was reclassifying from the 2019 class into 2018.

Barrett was born and raised in Canada, but plays his high school ball at Florida's Montverde Academy, the same school that produced Ben Simmons and D'Angelo Russell. He's electric in transition, he rebounds well for a guard and has the size, wingspan and athleticism to one day become an elite perimeter defender. It was the most points ever against Team USA in the FIBA U19 Men's Basketball World Championships. Before Friday night, the Blue Devils had already signed two prized class of 2018 prospects: point guard Tre Jones, the younger brother of Duke national title-winning PG Tyus Jones, and small forward Cameron Reddish.

Jones, Reddish and Barrett project to slot into the Blue Devils' starting lineup right away in 2018-19.

"Playing in eight games on the Nike EYBL circuit last spring, the 6'7" forward would average 28 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists. In addition to his fellow incoming freshmen, Duke could easily return current freshman and former five-star recruit Gary Trent Jr., giving the Blue Devils an array of perimeter talent that would be tough for any other program to match.

"Next year I will be attending Duke?University", Barrett announced on TSN's Sportscentre in Canada. All three are ranked among the top six prospects nationally.
