Where will Duke basketball recruiting target Charles Bediako end up?

IMG (Fla.) center Charles Bediako, a towering force with loads of potential in the post who ranks No. 26 overall on the 247Sports 2021 Composite, has been down to a final five of Alabama, Duke, Michigan, Ohio State, and Texas ever since October.

The 6-foot-11, 220-pound Canadian hasn’t budged on that list one bit. Also not budging since then has been the 247Sports Crystal Ball and Rivals FutureCast, which both continue to unanimously show Bediako picking Alabama.

So even though Bediako has mentioned in recent months that all five of his finalists remain in contact with him, including the Duke basketball staff, it still doesn’t seem at all likely that the big fella will end up anywhere outside of Tuscaloosa.

Bediako has repeated multiple times as of late that he intends to announce a winner before the end of March.
