Evan Daniels of 247Sports.com just broke the news moments ago that Duke commit Joey Baker intends to reclassify from the Class of 2019 to 2018:
“I talked to the coaches about it and we figured it was the best decision for my basketball game and off the court growth as well, like in the class room and socially,” Baker said. “I feel like it will challenge me in all of those aspects and allow me to grow a lot faster than I would.”

No word yet on if Baker intends to redshirt this Fall. He joins Duke’s already loaded #1 overall class for 2018.
