The Duke basketball team has landed another commitment in the Class of 2024. 

Four-star shooting guard Darren Harris committed to the Duke basketball program in October and he had been the only player in the 2024 recruiting class for the Blue Devils until this weekend when 5-star forward Isaiah Evans announced his verbal commitment to Jon Scheyer.

Evans took an official visit to Duke two weeks prior to his announcement, which he made on social media.

“I’m headed to the Brotherhood,” the North Carolina native said on Twitter.

Listed as a 6-foot-6 small forward, Evans is ranked as the No. 20 player in the Class of 2024, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, as well as the No. 7 player in his position and No. 2 prospect in the state of North Carolina.

Evans also officially visited Florida State in late October.

Duke previously had the No. 12 recruiting class in the country before the commitment and have now jumped to the No. 6 class in the nation, according to 247Sports.
