The Duke basketball program picked up a commitment from Javin DeLaurier on Sunday, adding another great player to the 2016 recruiting class.
DeLaurier is a 6’9″, 205-pound 4-star power forward from Charlottesville, Va., who plays for St. Anne’s Belfield School.
He’s listed in the 247Sports Composite as the No. 12 power forward in the 2016 class and is viewed as a guy who has the potential to develop as a four-year player at Duke, particularly as a defender and rebounder.
The Blue Devils closed quickly with the recruitment of DeLaurier and made him a big priority over the past few weeks. After offering him a scholarship during an in-home visit a few weeks ago, Coach K and his staff worked to get DeLaurier to move up his on-campus visit.
During his time in Durham over the weekend, DeLaurier made the decision to join Duke’s 2016 recruiting class. He becomes the third member of the class, joining 5-star recruits Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson.
The Blue Devils are also still pursuing the No. 1 ranked player in the 2016 class, Harry Giles, as well as 5-star targets Wenyen Gabriel and Marques Bolden.
Congratulations to Javin on becoming a future member of the Duke family. The Duke recruiting train keeps rolling!
