    Welcome to Duke, Paolo. In the picture he is in Duke uniform #5. I hope Jaemyn knows about this!

    WoW 😱

    This is HUGE!!! MASSIVE!!! AWESOME!!!

    I have not read one article where he was considered a Duke-Lean! Not one expert thought he would end up at Duke. Nobody saw this coming!

    Though, I must admit ... This is my favorite type of recruit commit! He never hinted at a specific school as the leader, he kept everything close to his chest, then dropped a shocking commitment out of virtually NOWHERE!!!

    Iíve watched a few videos on him and Iíll definitely admit that I really like his game. I havenít been able to come up with a past Duke baller comparison, though. Maybe a Jabari Parker with much better rebounding instincts?! He appears to have a great motor and heís very down to earth and liked by his peers.

    The question I have - Has there been any word on a package deal with him? It seems like package deals are becoming the norm. I thought I heard at one point him and Chandler considered hooking-up but heís already committed to Tennessee.

    Welcome Paolo!

    Watching his highlights, Iím struck by his variety of moves and ability to hit shots all over the floor. A bit like Jayson Tatum in that way. Jabari is probably a better comp given his size and strength inside.

    His shooting stroke looks very pure. He looks absolutely college ready and should be a force for the good guys from game one. With his high motor, Iím not seeing any shortcomings in his game.

    Very very cool! I'm thrilled!
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I find this comparison absurd. And exciting.

    Welcome Paolo!

    I do see the two as good comparisons.....

    Folks on DBR will mis-spell both names on a regular basis as we do with lots of top Duke players.

    Great news! Welcome Paolo! This reminds me so much of the Sat.night two years ago that Zion made the commitment to the Brotherhood,just out of nowhere. No one, especially me, thought we had a chance to get Banchero! Overjoyed!!

    Welcome Paolo!
    6'10 with ball handling skills. His body type is quite similar

    Whoa, fantastic news! Welcome to Duke, Paolo!

    A recruiting duo of Paolo Banchero and AJ Griffin is a fantastic one-two punch. And if Duke can add Patrick Baldwin...would be a phenomenal class! Lots of talent that fits well together.

    2021-22 is shaping up really well (and odds are we'll have basketball by then, right )
