…and another one… Duke gets a commitment from Jalen Johnson

In General Information, Recruiting by Brian HoraceLeave a Comment

I didn't think we got presents for the 4th of July but Coach K and the Duke brain trust received a bit of a surprise commitment in the class of 2020. 6'8 small forward Jalen Johnson committed to the Blue Devils via social media dropping a video announcing his decision.

Johnson fits the mold of a prototypical Coach K guard/forward with a versatile set of skills. There isn't anything Johnson doesn't do well - from passing to scoring. Some guys get the tag of "willing passer" Johnson however makes it an art form. In college Johnson is definitely positionless and can be plugged into any hole in the lineup. He could be the linchpin of Duke's 2020 class and his unselfish nature could spur others to Durham.

Johnson joins Virginia point guard Jeremy Roach in the beginnings of what could be a huge class for the Blue Devils.
