A silky 2024 prospect is expressing Duke basketball interest.

It remains an unknown where Lexington (S.C.) sophomore Cam Scott will end up when the 247Sports 2024 Composite debuts later this season. For the time being, though, the 6-foot-6, 180-pound shooting guard, whom many have referred to as a five-star, seems to be on the radar of every Tobacco Road program, including Duke basketball.

That said, the Duke Blue Devils have yet to extend any offers to Scott’s class.

During a recent chat with Pro Insight recruiting insider Andrew Slater, Scott listed schools that have offered him a scholarship thus far: Clemson, College of Charleston, Florida State, Georgia, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest. Note that many of those are of the ACC variety.

On that note, he plans to visit both UNC and NC State soon. And when Slater asked which programs he hopes to hear more from, Scott pointed out three: Duke, Tennessee, and UNC.

Assessing potential Duke basketball recruiting target Cam Scott

When watching highlights of Cam Scott, one word comes to mind: smooth. He already displays NBA moves, notably his quick stepback three, and is a constant scoring threat in transition and a halfcourt setting. His shot looks seamless and effortless. Furthermore, he often runs the point for his squad with noticeable confidence and fluidity.

Pair all that with his top-shelf length and height for his position. Indeed, Cam Scott could become a menace on Tobacco Road a few seasons from now. In other words, he’s one to keep an eye on as more recruiters begin to shift their focus to 2024 talents.
