Duke Basketball: Marvin Bagley Ruled Immediately Eligible

The Duke basketball program received some goods from the NCAA on Friday afternoon, with top recruit Marvin Bagley III ruled eligible to play immediately for the Blue Devils.

Duke announced the news on social media.

The 6-foot-10 freshman is viewed as a potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, so he’s expected to make an immediate contribution for the Blue Devils, who will enter the season as the preseason No. 1 team.

Bagley joins a loaded incoming Duke recruiting class that features five-star prospects Trevon Duval, Gary Trent Jr. and Wendell Carter.

Look for the Blue Devils to contend for a national championship this season with their star-studded lineup of “diaper dandies.”

Duke opens its 2017-18 campaign on Friday, Nov. 10 against Elon.
