    2022 Men's Basketball Recruiting

    We have a 2023 recruiting thread, but none for the Class of 2022. Let's get it started!

    Noah Batchelor is a 6'6" shooting guard out of Hagerstown, Maryland that has generated high major interest early. Clemson among others have extended an offer. He would love to hear from his favorite school, Duke University. One to keep an eye on?

    He's not currently considered a top 100 recruit but has reportedly had a good summer and is generating interest from significant programs. He likely need to continue that path of improvement relative to his class to get into the conversation for Duke, but the trajectory is not bad.

    While I am sure Duke is aware of the top kids in the 2022 class, I suspect K and his top recruiting assistant, Scheyer, have not focused on it enough to even begin to know who might get an offer from them (and we are probably at least a year from the first 2022 offers going out).

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    According to an Instagram story on Tipton Edits, Duke has offered Emoni Bates. Many consider Bates, a rising sophomore, to be the most talented player in high school. They might have even said the same thing last year.

    If you have not heard of him, Bates is a 6'8" rail-thin player from Ypsilanti, MI (just outside of Detroit) and is drawing many comparison to Kevin Durant as a tall and lanky wing that can score at all three levels with incredible skills to compliment his shooting. Many have assumed that the young man is going to be the next high school player to go straight to the NBA as the #1 pick. There was an article over the summer quoting the kid's father about how he wished teams would recruit his son. It seems that many coaches have stayed away from even watching Bates on the AAU circuit under the assumption that he won't set foot on a college campus. He had hardly received any offers. Tom Izzo and MSU did extend an offer earlier this summer and now it seems that Coach K and Duke have followed suit.

    Thanks for this update, Iíll have to to Bleacher Report and read up. Is the Coach K offer a sign that the NBA will not revise their Draft policy as early as most predicted?

    Bates is a rising sophomore and I believe Duke wants to have an opportunity to get to know him and his family. Is it possible that Bates may move up a class ?

    Seeing as no one, not even Adam Silver or Michele Roberts, knows for certain what is going to happen with OAD in 2022 (and beyond), I think this is a sign Coach K is preparing for the class of 2022 the same way he prepares for every class... looking for the best talent that fits with the Duke culture. If the top 15-20 kids in the class are not interested in going to school, then K will look at the next 20 or so. He is wisely not limiting himself in any way at this time.
