Four Duke basketball commits have signed their National Letters of Intent. 

National Signing Week has arrived in college sports and the Duke basketball commits are making their decisions final by putting pen to paper and signing their National Letters of Intent.

Four of the five recruits — Cooper Flagg, Patrick Ngongba II, Kon Knueppel, and Darren Harris — for the Blue Devils signed on Wednesday while one 5-star prospect — Isaiah Evans — has yet to officially sign.

Flagg, the top ranked player in the class, headlines the haul for Jon Scheyer after he announced his decision to chose Duke over UConn last week following visits to both programs.

However, Flagg is not the most recent commit for the Blue Devils after Patrick Ngongba made his choice public on Saturday when he picked the Blue Devils over Kentucky and Kansas State and joined his Paul VI (Va.) teammate Darren Harris in Durham.

Harris, a 4-star shooting guard, was the first player in the class to commit to Duke over a year ago in October of 2022.

Kon Knueppel is another recent pledge for the 5-time National Champions after he took an official visit on September 15 and committed just six days later.

All four players are ranked within the Top-60 of the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Isaiah Evans is still yet to sign with Duke and speculation continues to grow whether or not he will remain committed to the Blue Devils.

Chatter that Evans could decommit over the weekend after the program landed Patrick Ngongba and picked up several predictions for 5-star wing VJ Edgecombe, who has narrowed his choices between Duke and St. John’s.

The North Carolina native quickly shut down those rumors by posting on social media, “I ain’t going no where.”

Evans was the second member of the 2024 recruiting class to commit to Duke and ranks as the No. 13 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings.

The early signing period ends on November 15, so there is still over a week remaining for Isaiah Evans to officially join the top ranked recruiting class of the Blue Devils.
