No. 1 Prospect RJ Barrett is a Duke Blue Devil

Canadian superstar, R.J. Barrett is a Duke Blue Devil.

Duke landed another stellar prospect and the best player on Canada when Rowan (RJ) Barrett committed to the Blue Devils on Friday evening.

Barrett possesses tremendous scoring instincts and led Team Canada to a historic win over Team USA this past summer.  The sleek, multi faceted wing scored 38 points in that game on a team that feature future teammates Cameron Reddish and Tre Jones.

The young star to be excels in the transition game, easily creating his own shot or dishing an assist.  He has good range and plays with a lot of energy quickly surveying the floor and calculating his move.

Barrett plays his high school basketball for Montverde Academy in Florida.  He has played with some different Nike teams but mostly for Nike Uplay in Canada.  He hails from Mississauga, Ontario.  He made his announcement on the TSN (The Sports Network) which is in his home country of Canada.

Barrett is another can't miss prospect who will make Cameron Crazies blush with his play.  Many feel he will be the top pick in the 2019 NBA Draft which shows the respect he has earned with his play.
