As predicted, Wendell Moore has decided and is officially committed to Duke for 2019. It’s our first commitment from the 2019 class so we’re pretty psyched: our recruiting class has been best in four of the five past years but the progress for the 2019-2020 season has been slow. However, most of the top guys on ESPN’s Top100 have not yet made a decision so it’s normal not to have too many pickups yet. Moore, a 6’6″, 215 SF, caused a Tobacco Road battle by narrowing to the four major college basketball schools in North Carolina: Duke, UNC, Wake Forest, and NC State. Congratulations to him and his family, and welcome to The Brotherhood!

Duke was my dream school, growing up. When I was on campus what impressed me the most was the former players that return and how they feel about Duke. It’s one big family and I want to be a part of it. Their style of play fits me really well. My goal is to play in the NBA if I am fortunate enough to make it

Recruiting: Wendell Moore to Decide Monday

Duke and UNC are in a battle for in-state prospect Wendell Moore of Concord and he’s announced that he will decide on Wednesday. I admit I’ve been pretty terrible about watching the Class of 2019 recruiting but from what I’ve seen the top prospects haven’t made any decisions. Moore is ranked 18th by ESPN and 247’s Crystal Ball puts Duke at 100%. Of course, Zion Williamson shocked the world with his decision and he was heavily favored to stay in his home state, so there’s never a guarantee but he’d be a nice addition. We’ve not gotten any commitments yet in ESPN’s Top 100 yet but nobody’s doubting Coach K’s prowess as a recruiter or coach. Moore is a 6-5, 210 small forward from Concord, NC, who attends Cox Mill High School.

Bleed Blue. Countdown gets closer as we speak! Thirteen days!
