Mere hours after securing the commitment of Top 40 PF Henry Coleman, it was announced on Twitter than the Blue Devils had offered Top 40 Center Hunter Dickinson:

Dickison is the #34 overall player (#6 center) in the Class of 2020 and currently attends DeMatha Catholic. Duke recently missed out on one of their other top center targets when Walker Kessler surprised many and choose UNC. The Blue Devils are hoping to pair Dickinson with Mark Williams. They are among the finalists for Williams.
Duke will have lots of playing time available in the post next year with the expected departures of Vernon Carey Jr. and Matthew Hurt as early entrants into the NBA Draft as well as Javin DeLaurier to graduation.
