The Duke basketball program has booked another visitor for September 15. 

Things are back in full swing in Durham as the Duke basketball players have returned to campus for the start of the school year but there will be even more buzz around Cameron Indoor Stadium in two weeks.

The Blue Devils have booked Nikola Bundalo for a visit on September 15, according to Rivals‘ Houston Wilson.

Wilson also notes that Bundalo is planning to take visits to USC and Michigan State this fall as well.

The 6-foot-9 forward does not currently hold an offer from the Blue Devils but he is ranked as a 4-star prospect in the Class of 2024 and listed as the No. 24 player in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Georgetown, Ohio State, Syracuse, UCLA, and Virginia are some of the schools that have offered the Western Reserve Academy (Ohio) standout.

Kon Knueppel, a Class of 2024 prospect, and Nate Ament, a 2025 target, are also scheduled to take visits to Duke on the same weekend as Bundalo.

Knueppel, however, will be on an official visit.

Duke has yet to land a commitment in the Class of 2025 but its offer list continues to grow with point guards Meleek Thomas and Cayden Boozer, shooting guards Brayden Burries and Jalen Haralson, forwards Cameron Boozer, Koa Peat, and Caleb Wilson, and center Khaman Maluach.

“I’m trying to go out there every game and kill, just take people’s souls out there,” Niko Bundalo told Jamie Shaw of On3 earlier this summer.

“My confidence is high right now, I got that Mamba Mentality, I take that from Kobe when I play.”
