    Spoke to Wendell Moore just a little while ago. He had this to say about Duke: “If I am fortunate enough to make it to the NBA, this is always a place I can call home.
    “It’s always been a dream of mine to go to Duke.”

    Wendell is likely a fringe OAD. He's currently ranked #22 in the RSCI, and he sounds like a bit of a tweener between SG and SF from what little I know, unless he has a killer jumpshot (which I haven't heard).

    Objectively, he may be here for more than a year. Which I love.

    Article I just read says his shot isn't great and he's a slasher.

    I've stayed off this thread, other than to pop in from time to time, because I have sort of dreaded the inevitable transitions...from OAD to more normal development....and from K to, well, whoever, whenever. I really do not like the OAD, never have, but we were potentially facing down a very rough transition. This development might help smooth that out.

    Wendell was a starter on the gold-medal winning USA U17 team this past summer

    Nice assist to turnover ratio.

    Wendell sounds like the perfect recruit - just under the level of a OAD so you’ll have him for more than a year, yet talented enough to make an impact even in his first year. We’ll need scorers around him but he’ll be an excellent foundational piece of the team moving forward. And he loves Duke!

    Wendell was also a starter the previous summer (2017) on the gold-medal winning USA U16 team.

    Nice steals total.

    Welcome to Duke, Wendell!

    I think this kid is a great fit for the Duke family. Talented, smart, humble, hardworking... in other words, a Blue Devil.

    The moment that he announces for Duke in video form below:

    Wendell had went backstage to put on his school choice's gear. At the 30 second mark of the video, Wendell walks back on stage in Duke gear, and the crowd explodes in cheers and applause. (There had been people in the crowd cheering for "red" / NCSU. But nope, Duke blue.)

    But in both events, v bad 3pt %. Although the FT % is solid, hopefully indicating potential.

    From the segment they showed on that (stupid) ADSN feed, he really does seem like a great kid from a nice family. He came off as a great balance of relaxed, level-headed, and engaging.

    I'm excited to focus more on and learn more about Wendell Moore Jr. in the coming months (and hopefully years). [Note: apparently those in his circle call him "Junior" - according to the ADSN feed.]

    Based on his high school stats, Wendell is comfortable putting up threes from the high school line: 5.6 attempts/gm with 32% accuracy.

    That's not horrible, but he needs to extend his range. He was much more shy (and less accurate) shooting threes from the AAU line (1 ft longer) and from the FIBA line (~2.5 ft longer).

    He seems to be a very good FT shooter (>80% in AAU and high school), so I think he can extend the range, given time.

    I wonder if Brian Davis might be a good comparison.
