The Duke basketball fanbase is very anxious for the program’s next commitment. 

The domination of the Duke basketball program on the recruiting trail can be a double-edged sword for anxious fans.

As we get deeper into the off-season, this unusual gap in commitments has left a lot of speculation about who will be the next prized addition to the Blue Devil roster.

The most recent commitment Duke received was from 6-foot-6 bucket getter Isaiah Evans.

The recruitment process for the 5-star Evans went quite swiftly as he took a visit on April 13 and committed just two weeks later, April 27.

The Blue Devils also hold a commitment from 4-star wing Darren Harris, but adding three more players would solidify another Top-5 class for Jon Scheyer and Duke.

Duke basketball eyeing two big time recruits

Amongst the candidates rumored to be committing in the next few months are Flory Bidunga and Patrick Ngongba II, two high quality big men in the Class of 2024.

For Duke, it’s essential to secure a commitment from at least one of them as the team is expected to experience significant turnover after this season, with stars like Kyle Filipowski, Mark Mitchell, and Tyrese Proctor all anticipated to leave the program for the NBA Draft next offseason.

Bidunga, the defensive savant, would provide an elite athletic defender and rebounder who can score in the post and finish with power.

On the other hand, Ngongba is a skillful player capable of playing both inside and outside, with the ability to take and make shots from beyond the arc.

Both would be very good options for the Blue Devils.

Flory Bidunga included Duke in his Top-4 finalists while Patrick Ngongba II has the program in his Top-8.

For now, we can all sit back and just wait for the next social media post by the Duke Twitter page with the classic “another one” tweet.
