Duke basketball freshman guard Jared McCain is turning heads this summer. 

The anticipation for the upcoming Duke basketball season is reaching its peak.

It is the time of the year when workouts, scrimmages, and practice videos flood the internet, providing fans with exciting content that leaves them even more eager for the upcoming season.

In a very recent video released by the Blue Devils, one player stood out, and that was freshman Jared McCain.

Listed as a 6-foot-3 combo guard from California, McCain is leaving a remarkable impression with his play this summer.


The video shows how confidently he competes while still having fun as he appears to be in full control, and playing at his own pace.

His lethal jumpshot is on display and should provide the Duke offense with more spacing, adding to the lethality that Jon Scheyer’s team should roll out behind returning players such as Kyle Filipowski, Jeremy Roach, Mark Mitchell, and Tyrese Proctor.

Duke basketball freshman has skill, personality to thrive this season

His acumen will be a key factor in his early success, as he continues to demonstrate a keen understanding of when to take the shot or make the extra pass. This kind of adaptability that the McDonald’s All-American has shown bodes well for him and the team as a whole.

With a stable of guards on hand for Scheyer to call on, McCain is competing to earn his spot, and it seems to be going well.
