The consensus number 1 player in the 2018 class, R.J. Barrett has committed to Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils. Barrett, a 6’6, small forward / shooting guard chose the Devils from a list that included Kentucky and Oregon. The Canadian prospect who will most likely be a one and done talent joins an already strong recruiting class that includes Tre Jones and Cam Reddish. R.J.’s father is the Executive VP & Asst. GM of Canada Basketball and his godfather is NBA legend Steve Nash. R.J. currently attends Montverde Academy in Florida.
The school will get an NBA superstar in the making and I’m not exaggerating. Has a chance to be best Canadian ever, his biggest hurdle will be his Godfather Steve Nash. But the kid is wired mentally in a very unique way. He knows what he wants, and he gets it every time. If I was a betting man, I’d go all in with the school he chooses to win NCAA national championship. WINNER.
