A promising recruit will get an inside look at the Duke basketball program.

When the 247Sports 2023 Player Rankings expanded from 75 to 150 names in October, Windermere (Fla.) junior Sean Stewart saw the highest debut among all the newcomers. With that in mind, it makes sense that interest appears to be coming from the Duke Blue Devils as the four-star packs his bags for an official visit to Duke basketball country this weekend.

Now, there is no word yet of a Blue Devil offer to the 6-foot-8, 210-pound power forward. That said, On3 recruiting insider Joe Tipton noted via a tweet on Tuesday that he won’t be shocked if Duke officially enters the recruiting race during Stewart’s stay in Durham.

An assessment of the aggressive Duke basketball recruiting prospect

Sean Stewart now ranks No. 33 overall on the 247Sports 2023 Composite, which seems primarily due to his relentless energy paired with his hoops acumen.

Here’s what 247Sports national recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins noticed about the quickly improving prospect following his early-October trip to Coach Wootten’s Top 150 Camp in Dallas:

“Sean Stewart definitely left a great last impression on our staff with his performance…However, his body of work dates back to this summer where he was heavily productive in playing to his strengths. He gets off the floor well, has a nice shooting touch, and plays with an edge.”

Jenkins continued:

“A prospect who is high on academics, Stewart’s high IQ also translates on the floor as he reliably gets the job done each time he laces them up.”

With a dozen or so offers already in hand, Sean Stewart recently told Travis Branham of 247Sports that his most active suitors are Georgetown, Florida, and Stanford. But after using his first official visit to check out Michigan in late October, Sean Stewart has only the trip to Duke on his list at this time.
