The Duke basketball program made another interesting offer in the Class of 2023.
It’s the worst kept secret in the country; the Duke basketball program wants to add its top ranked recruiting class in 2023.
Kentucky sits mere percentage points behind the Blue Devils in the 247Sports rankings after its addition of five-star forward Justin Edwards on Monday night.
Duke also was officially taken out of the running for five-star forward Xavier Booker after the fast rising prospect did not include the Blue Devils in his Top-10 finalists but Jon Scheyer responded with handing out an offer to four-star wing Andrej Stojakovic.
Stojakovic, the son of three-time NBA All-Star Peja Stojakovic, stands at 6-foot-7 and is ranked as the No. 22 player in the Class of 2023, one slot below Duke commit Jared McCain, No. 4 small forward, and the No. 6 player in the state of California, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
The Carmichael, California native has a plethora of offers, including Kansas and Kentucky, but appears to be a UCLA lean as both 247Sports and Rivals have logged predictions for him to land in Los Angeles.
Duke basketball adding options in Class of 2023
Andrej Stojakovic has only taken two official visits in his recruitment to UCLA and Stanford and it appears that the Blue Devils have significant ground to make up in the chase for services of the small forward.
Duke has four five-star players committed in 2023 with forwards Mackenzie Mgbacko and Sean Stewart and guards Caleb Foster and Jared McCain.
The Blue Devils are also still actively recruiting four-star center JP Estrella and four-star wing TJ Power while five-star forward Mookie Cook, who recently decommitted from Oregon, continues to plead for a Duke offer in his new recruitment.
Power began his official visit to Duke on July 26 while Estrella begins his official visit to Duke on July 31.
