The Duke basketball team has made another addition to its 2022-23 roster. 

The biggest news around Durham this week was the reclassification of point guard Tyrese Proctor from the Class of 2023 to the Class of 2022 to join the Blue Devils this upcoming season but the Duke basketball program made another addition to its roster.

Princeton senior guard Max Johns will be transferring to Duke for the final years of his eligibility.

The news was first reported by Brendan Marks of The Athletic.

Johns averaged a total of 2.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.4 assists per game in his three year playing career at Princeton while shooting 51.9-percent from the floor and 35.3-percent from 3-point range.

The 6-foot-4, 205 pound guard will be a walk-on for the Blue Devils.

Max Johns, a High Point, North Carolina native, played in all 30 games, making one start, for the Tigers last season and averaged a career-best 2.8 points per game in 7.4 minutes per contest.

New Duke basketball guard has valuable experience

Do not expect to see Max Johns taking the floor in Cameron Indoor Stadium often next season as Brendan Marks reported that he will be a practice player for the Blue Devils.

However, the newest member of the Duke squad has played in 74 games in his career but has yet to play in a conference tournament championship game or an NCAA Tournament contest.

Head coach Jon Scheyer has now added three transfers this offseason as the Blue Devils already landed Northwestern transfer power forward Ryan Young and former Harvard standout small forward Kale Catchings.

Duke is also brining in the top ranked recruiting class comprised of five-star center Dereck Lively II, five-star power forward Kyle Filipowski, five-star small forward Dariq Whitehead, five-star power forward Mark Mitchell, five-star combo guard Tyrese Proctor, four-star shooting guard Jaden Schutt, and three-star center Christian Reeves.
