The Duke basketball program could be getting a head start on the Class of 2033. 

The next generation of Duke basketball is quickly upon us.

Mike Krzyzewski’s grandson, Michael Savarino, was a walk-on for the program.

Head coach Jon Scheyer is trying to land Class of 2025 studs Cameron and Cayden Boozer, the twin sons of Duke Hall of Famer Carlos Boozer.

Now, Scheyer and his coaching staff might have to begin their work on Class of 2033 sharpshooter Knox Redick, the 8-year old son of JJ Redick.

The youngest Redick challenged New York Knicks guard Josh Hart to a 3-point contest and JJ Redick’s podcast, The Old Man & The Three, was there to capture it.

The two got a total of 10 shots from five different spots around the permitter, similar to the rules of the NBA 3-Point Shootout, and the shooting wasn’t pretty but it was the 8-year old that topped the 28-year old.

Knox Redick made 4-of-10 shots while Hart, a 51.9-percent 3-point shooter this season and 35.0-percent sniper for his career, hit only 3-of-10 shots.

The Duke basketball social media team had to chime in and try and make its early recruiting pitch, in addition to tagging head coach Jon Scheyer, to the Class of 2033 prospect and his father certainly didn’t shut down the idea on social media.

JJ Redick spent four seasons with the Blue Devils in which he was the National Player of the Year in 2006 and a two-time consensus First-Team All-American in 2005 and 2006.

Those same seasons also saw the elite shooting guard capture back-to-back ACC Player of the Year Awards as well as being named as the Most Valuable Player of the ACC Tournaments.

Redick’s iconic No. 4 hangs in the rafters of Cameron Indoor Stadium as his 2,769 points are the most any player has scored in their Duke career and 964 points in the 2005-06 season are the most any Blue Devil has scored in a single year.

It would be a major blow to the recruiting momentum of Jon Scheyer and his coaching staff if he’s not able to close the deal on a can’t miss prospect like Knox Redick, but we’ll give him to to really create that strong bond and relationship with the family.

Maybe some major strings can be pulled behind the scenes to somehow get Knox Redick and Deuce Tatum on a future Duke squad.
