    Now how accurate all of these are will always be in question.
    Certainly true!!!

    5 Blue Devils Selected to Jordan Brand Classic

    The Class of 2020 will be well represented at the Jordan Brand Classic this March in Chicago. In fact, all 5 will be on the same team. Hometown kid DJ Steward will likely get a warm reception. He'll be joined by Jalen Johnson, Jaemyn Brakefield, Jeremy Roach, and Mark Williams on the "Home Team." The "Road Team" will feature a trio of Tar Heels, including RJ Davis, Caleb Love, and Day'Ron Sharpe.

    Interesting from looking at the players n positions the cheats have 3 players on the team n 2 of them are Pt Guards. Thatís very interesting that Roy recruited n sighted 2 pt. Guards on the same class. That might make things interesting for them next season.

    At some points during this season, they didn't have any point guards. Makes sense to stock up on them just in case.

    In truth, RJ Davis is more of a scoring guard and not a PG. He is a high level shooter and shot creator but undersized to play the SG position in college or the pros. I would consider him more of a combo or off guard. Caleb Love is the "true" PG. UNC will also bring back Jeremiah Francis next season as a sophomore reserve PG. They will still have Andrew Platak as a senior SG that might start some games or split time with RJ Davis. It's also possible that Anthony Harris will come back halfway through the year to play a few minutes off the bench as another guard. UNC will have a ton of guard depth but will be incredibly young and unproven. They should be better than this year at the very least.

    I could go for about 11-14 overall and 4-9 in the acc.

    Nah, never mind; let's cheer for 0-25/0-13.

    I believe the 2020 class is finished except if Kuminga reclasses and commits to Duke.

    It's my opinion, but I do not see him coming to Duke

    Why do you think that?

    GoDuke!

    Am hearing that it is an academic issue to be at Duke next year. I like our class. Hope we keep a few freshmen from this year to join them.

    The culture of this forum is to cite sources. When you make a blanket statement like "am hearing that is an academic issue to be at Duke next year..." people are going to want to know more and how you came to that conclusion.

    An academic issue for whom? Are there too many players for available slots? Is a 2020 prospect that is interested in Duke not academically eligible? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I think that poster may have been responding to the question of why one wouldnít think Kuminga is coming to Duke next year. But I agree more clarity and a source would be nice.

    I voiced my opinion about Kuminga not coming to Duke based off the SOURCES of:
    Evan Daniels and even Corey Evans.

    Also, looking at the roster for next year, if Moore and one of Stanley and Hurt return, Kuminga on that roster will cause either him or one of them to have a lesser role.

    Now would take Kuminga? Heck yes. He's a true talent although not a finished product.
    Could he start at Duke? Yes, But if its Kuminga, Johnson, Moore/Stanley/Hurt, Roach... whos the 5? Kuminga isn't a guy to man the 5 and neither is Johnson. Hurt if he comes back, but Hurt on D would not be good.

    A Team of OADs that are Grad Transfers?

    Just a muse, what could a team look like with OADs composed of Transfer Grads? Then, a team would not be "young". Maybe easier to coach and mold?

    If--note the qualifier--Duke has some unexpected attrition, I would absolutely expect a late signee or two. Jack White and Jordan Goldwire came onto the scene pretty late and both became rotation players.
