While it seems like the sports world is on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak, one thing remains the same, that being Duke Basketball never stops.
The Blue Devils men's basketball staff has been active throughout the process of seeking to get back to normal in that they have been active on the recruiting trail.
Duke sent out its first offer in the class of 2022 to Canadian Caleb Houstan who hails from Mississauga, Ontario which is just outside of Toronto. If that sounds familiar it is because that is where former Duke standout and current New York Knick R.J. Barrett is from.
The Duke staff led by head coach Mike Kzyzewski have been able to contact players since June 15th and we can expect to see more offers in the coming days.
Houstan who is known for his good footwork on the court may have gotten that from playing soccer. During the FIBA games for under 16 players, Houstan averaged just under 23 points per outing to go with five boards where he helped lead Canada to the Silver Medal.
Houstan has supposedly grown an inch and is no 6-8 and there is one other thing to keep an eye on here. Houstan may look into entering the class of 2021 when the dust clears on the summer, so stay tuned for more on that.
A sleek scorer, Houstan has the attention of many schools to date but the Blue Devils have made their move here to enter the fray.
