Duke basketball to host son of five-time NBA champ


Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) four-star combo guard Dylan Harper doesn’t yet boast a Duke basketball recruiting offer. Yet that will soon change.

Late last week at Peach Jam in North Augusta, S.C., the 6-foot-5, 180-pound versatile lefty told Jamie Shaw of On3 that he hears from the Duke staff often and is planning a visit to ascertain out the Blue Devils in person:

“I’d say I’ve developed one of the best relationship with Texas Tech, Rutgers, Indiana, and Duke. All of them reach out to me usually. I’m trying to set a visit with those 4 and perhaps a California school.”

Harper, who ranks No. 33 overall on the 247Sports 2024 Composite and is the son of five-time NBA champ Ron Harper, only recently began talking to the staff from Durham.

But judging by what he said to Shaw in regards to the Blue Devils specifically, it looks as if first-year head coach Jon Scheyer and his gang have already made a robust impression on the rising highschool junior:

“The care they provide you with really stands out. They provide you with love and support in any respect times. They’ll call you and inspect you.”

A possible Duke basketball package deal

Interestingly, Duke’s interest in Dylan Harper may find yourself helping this system’s pursuit of the No. 1 prospect on the 247Sports 2024 Composite, Naas Cunningham, a small forward from Latest Jersey who landed a Blue Devil offer in January.

Here’s what Harper told Jamie Shaw about potentially teaming up with Cunningham at the subsequent level:

“I have been talking with Naas Cunningham about going to high school together. I feel he’s an awesome wing, he doesn’t beg for the ball, and you are going to search out him every game because he’s all the time in the best spot.”

Jon Scheyer has not yet reeled in any commitments from 2024 talents. Five players in the category have offers from the Blue Devils: Naas Cunningham, five-star shooting guard Tre Johnson, five-star small forward Bryson Tucker, four-star small forward Darren Harris, and four-star center James Brown.
