Duke basketball reportedly supports the idea of a Caleb Foster reclass.

As noted here a couple of times in recent months, Oak Hill (Va.) junior point guard Caleb Foster might move up a grade to join the stacked 2022 Duke basketball recruiting class. And in an article on Monday, 247Sports national recruiting insider Brandon Jenkins fueled the talk further by officially putting the 6-foot-5, 190-pound five-star on “deep reclassification watch.”

Jenkins pointed out that, according to his sources, Blue Devil head coach-in-waiting Jon Scheyer is on board with the possibility. However, Jenkins also wrote that Foster, who pledged his allegiance to the Duke Blue Devils following an official visit to Durham in early September, doesn’t plan to make up his mind until his team finishes its current season.

High praise for the future Duke basketball floor general

Caleb Foster ranks No. 9 overall on the 247Sports 2023 Composite and sits No. 2 at his position behind Donda (Calif.) five-star Robert Dillingham, who committed to Kevin Keatts and the NC State Wolfpack back in late October. That said, with no disrespect to Dillingham, Brandon Jenkins sees Foster as the top point guard in his current class:

“My pick for the top point guard in the class is Caleb Foster. It has not been the most impressive stretch of games for Foster’s start to the season, but his body of work, IQ, and intangibles make it hard for him to bet against.”

In addition to Caleb Foster, the Blue Devils boast a commitment from Windermere (Fla.) junior power forward Sean Stewart, a four-star who ranks No. 33 among his peers. Together, they comprise the nation’s No. 1 haul thus far on the 2023 recruiting trail, per 247Sports.
