Fans can catch a partial preview of the 2020-21 Duke basketball roster by watching two of next season's freshmen in Durham compete against one another.
Three 2020 Duke basketball signees will be on the same court on Saturday at 8:45 p.m. when IMG Academy (Fla.) takes on Paul VI Catholic (Va.) at the National Hoopfest in Hyattsville, Md.
Technically, though, one will be on the bench. IMG's Jalen Johnson, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound five-star small forward who ranks No. 6 on the 247Sports 2020 Composite, has yet to play this season after undergoing meniscus repair back in September.
But two future Blue Devils will square off.
Mark Williams is a 7-foot, 220-pound four-star center who ranks No. 30 and is playing his senior season for IMG after transferring from Norfolk Academy (Va.). The high-IQ big man has a burgeoning skillset down low and the potential to start for Duke upon his arrival.
And Jeremy Roach is a 6-foot-2, 180-pound five-star point guard who ranks No. 23 and will try to build on his 20-point performance for Paul VI earlier in the week after sitting out his junior season due to tearing his right ACL. The speedster with a penchant for aggressive drives may also start from Day One as a Blue Devil — assuming Tre Jones leaves after his current sophomore campaign as Duke's floor general.

Duke basketball fans can find highlights of the battle between Williams and Roach via the Twitter account of the Monumental Sports Network or catch the entire game live on the network's website (requires a subscription, but a free trial is available).
In addition to Johnson, Williams, and Roach, the 2020 class set to head to Durham next season consists of five-star combo guard D.J. Steward, four-star power forward Jaemyn Brakefield, and four-star power forward Henry Coleman. The only 2020 Duke offer still awaiting an answer is to four-star center Hunter Dickinson.
