A possible Duke basketball target will see the Blue Devils play the Camels.
Sophomore point guard Jeremy Roach and freshman shooting guard Trevor Keels, who comprise the current Duke basketball starting backcourt, arrived via Paul VI (Va.) outside of Washington, D.C. They starred together for several seasons there and built a strong friendship, which played a part in Keels following Roach to Durham.
Therefore, it’d be no surprise if another budding perimeter weapon from the perennial prep powerhouse might have considerable interest in the Blue Devils right about now.
Well, according to SI.com national recruiting insider Jason Jordan, Paul VI sophomore wing Darren Harris will be in Cameron Indoor Stadium at 8 p.m. ET Saturday when the No. 9 Duke Blue Devils (2-0) host the unranked Campbell Camels (2-0).
The 6-foot-6 smooth shooter does not appear in any rankings. However, it’s important to point out that recruiting sites’ 2024 rankings remain extremely limited or nonexistent.
A frequent observer of Duke basketball with sights on improving his game
In October, following an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech, Darren Harris spoke to 247Sports about his passion for ACC hoops, mentioning the Blue Devils and Hokies in particular:
“We watch a lot of ACC. I watch a lot of Duke, and growing up, I watched a lot of VT because I know Erick Green, and it was great to see him kill it at the ACC level.”
Harris then described his playing style and areas for improvement:
“I’m a catch-and-shoot guy first, but when I need to, I put the ball on the floor and look to score or make a play. My defense is improving. I’m unselfish and just want to win at any cost…I watch a lot of Klay Thompson. He moves without the ball really well…He’s also really efficient with his moves. He never overdribbles and is an elite scorer.”
At this early stage, Darren Harris holds offers from only Georgetown and George Mason. Meanwhile, the Duke basketball recruiting team has yet to hand out its first 2024 offer.
