Duke picked up its first commitment for the class of 2014 Wednesday, when 6-foot-4 shooting guard Grayson Allen chose the Blue Devils. According to ESPN, Allen is a four-star player who ranks 36th in his class.
Allen averaged 19.3 points per game last season and led Providence High to the Class 3A state championship in Florida. He scored 31 points in the state championship game.
Allen took to Twitter to make his announcement, tweeting Committed!!! and a picture of a Duke D.
ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep wrote on Twitter that Allen is a multi-position wing with real toughness, range and court presence.
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski saw him play last weekend at Nike EYBL in Los Angeles.
Other Duke targets in the class of 2014 include point guard Tyus Jones, center Jahlil Okafor, forward Trey Lyles, guard Justise Winslow and guard Theo Pinson.
