The Duke basketball program is officially on the radar of the top senior center. 

Things seem to be going well in Durham as 5-star center Flory Bidunga visits the Duke basketball program.

Bidunga arrived on campus without an offer from Jon Scheyer and his coaching staff but will leave very high on Duke’s radar after landing the coveted scholarship offer on Wednesday night.

The official visit began on Tuesday and the 6-foot-9 center was scheduled to return home on Thursday afternoon.

Flory Bidunga made the announcement of his offer on social media.

A standout at Kokomo High School (Ind.), Bidunga is ranked as the No. 1 center in the Class of 2024, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, as well as the No. 4 prospect in the nation.

Duke basketball still looking for massive haul in rising senior class

Duke currently has the No. 7 recruiting class, according to 247Sports, with 5-star forward Isaiah Evans and 4-star guard Darren Harris.

The Blue Devils also still have offers out to 5-star prospects Tre Johnson, Bryson Tucker, and Dylan Harper in addition to 4-star targets Naas Cunningham, Tyler Betsey, and Patrick Ngongba II.

Ngongba II recently completed a visit to Durham while the program had an in-home visit with Betsey in May and Harper is arguably its biggest recruiting prospect still available.

There is no timeline for a potential commitment or cutdown of his list but it is very apparent that Duke is a major player for Flory Bidunga.
