Busy September for Duke Has Walker Kessler on Campus

If you haven't noticed already, Septemeber is a big recruiting month for Duke Basketball.  Last weekend, the Blue Devils entertained Virginia power forward Henry Coleman.

This weekend, Duke will host top-rated big man and long-time target Walker Kessler.  The 6-10 prospect plays for Woodburn Academy in Fairburn, Georgia.

The Blue Devils have had the Kessler family on campus before but this time they hope to close the deal on a much-needed body.

Duke is expected to lose almost all of their frontcourt players after this coming season and there is a need for multiple prospects who can anchor the baseline.

The Blue Devils have already secured the services of Jalen Johnson and Jeremy Roach, but the desire is to land commitments from several more players.

Duke will entertain Virginia big man Mark Williams in November.  He's the brother of former Duke standout Elizabeth Williams.  The fast-rising big man will be playing alongside Jalen Johnson after transferring to IMG Academy.

The Blue Devils are in the process of setting up a visit with Chicago scorer DJ Steward.  Duke is all in on Steward who has been getting several offers since early summer.

Duke has also entered the Ziaire Williams race to stay which we mentioned a few weeks back to Blue Devil Nation members.  That said, join Blue Devil Nation Premium during our 60 bucks for one year special and get straight talk on where we think Duke stands with the aforementioned recruits.

While the players listed head the list, there are some other possibilities which could come into play.  But make no mistake, Duke wants every prospect on this shortlist of players they want to become a part of the brotherhood.
