Duke basketball players not opting for NBA Draft.

Jeremy Roach

Originally, Jeremy Roach had opted to throw his name into the 2023 NBA Draft while remaining eligible to return to Duke for the 2023-2024 season.

After testing the waters of the draft, Roach ultimately announced he would return to Duke for his senior season.

The 6-foot-2 guard was great on both ends of the floor for the Blue Devils this past season, averaging 13.6 points per game and shooting 42.6-percent from the field,.

Jeremy Roach will surely be a key player, once again, in the 2023-2024 season.

Tyrese Proctor, Mark Mitchell, Kyle Filipowski

Tyrese Proctor, Mark Mitchell, and Kyle Filipowski all opted to return to Duke for the 2023-2024 season from the beginning of the offseason.

As a matter of fact, the Blue Devils are projected, by some experts, to be the best team in college basketball next season because of their return.

Following Jeremy Roach’s announcement that he would return to Durham, the Blue Devils took the No. 1 spot in ESPN’s “Way-Too-Early Top 25” projections.

John Scheyer’s starting five for the 2023-2024 season is likely as follows: Jeremy Roach, Tyrese Proctor, Jared McCain, Mark Mitchell, and Kyle Filipowski.
