The Duke basketball team added a surprising name to its 2017 recruiting class today with the commitment of Jordan Goldwire:

Goldwire is a 6’2″, 170-pound guard from Norcross, Georgia who also held offers from UNLV, Eastern Kentucky, Coastal Carolina, Hofstra, and Towson, according to 247Sports.

According to the SB Nation website Mountain West Connection, Goldwire averaged 11 points and 5 assists this past season at Norcross High School.

For all the talk about the recruiting Gary Trent Jr. and Wendell Carter have been doing to persuade Kevin Knox, Trevon Duval, and Mohamed Bamba to join them in Durham, we may have 2017 Duke commit Alex O’Connell to thank for this one.

O’Connell and Goldwire are teammates for Team United and have played together in the prestigious Nike EYBL.

Before Duke fans start panicking, the commitment of Goldwire is likely an effort by the Duke coaches to build depth and have a complete roster capable of having a regular practice routine for the next couple years. This shouldn’t be viewed as any connection on how things are going with Trevon Duval and/or Kevin Knox.

Welcome to the Duke family, Jordan!

During his playing days, David perfected his role on his basketball team as being the guy who would hold everyone on the bench back after a teammate would make a clutch shot. He once played N.C. State legend David Thompson in a game of H-O-R-S-E. David won.
