Duke Offers Italian-American Star Guard Nico Mannion

Mannion has made the transition from Italy to USA Basketball.

The Duke Blue Devils have offered Italian-American guard Nico Mannion.  The 2020 Class member is an aggressive guard who now calls the USA home where he participates in the USA Basketball program.

Originally from Siena, Italy, Mannion now plays his high school basketball Pinnacle High in Phoenix, AZ.  He plays his AAU ball for West Coast Elite on the Under Armor circuit.

Mannion has both the grades and talent to possibly reclassify to the 2019 class and the Blue Devils are seeking multiple guards for their motion based system.

The top rated PG prospect is considered a hard worker which has attributed to his consistent rise in the player rankings.
