Two Duke commits were named to the McDonald’s All-American roster on Monday.
Wendell Carter, a 6-10, 262-pound forward, from Pace Academy in Atlanta, will play for the East team, while Gary Trent Jr., a 6-5, 200-pound guard, from Prolific Prep in Napa, Calif., will play for the West.
Carter and Trent both committed to Duke in November.
The Blue Devils could potentially have five players on the roster if they can land three top prospects who have expressed interest in Duke.
