Bagley is projected by most mock drafts to be a Top 3 selection, another in the long line of first round picks under Coach K.
Duke has had 12 freshman declare for draft Corey Maggette (1999), Luol Deng (2004), Kyrie Irving (2011), Austin Rivers (2012), Jabari Parker (2014), Tyus Jones (2015), Jahlil Okafor (2015), Justise Winslow (2015), Brandon Ingram (2016), Jayson Tatum (2017), and Harry Giles (2017)

“No freshman has done more in his freshman year than Marvin,” said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “He’s broken every record and he’s really represented us at the highest level. I’m proud of him because he came in late and he adapted at the highest level. We wish him well. He and his family have prepared him well for this move. He’s ready. I can only see great things happening for him.”
