The Duke basketball team is in desperate need to reload its roster with playmaking studs.
Following the departures of several key playmakers for the Blue Devils squad, Coach K is hoping to get the party started with an unofficial visit from highly coveted prospect Trevon Duval.
On Tuesday, Duke reportedly played host to the five-star point guard.

The top-ranked point guard has no shortage of options when deciding where he will play basketball at the next level. A consensus five-star prospect, he is ranked as the fifth best player in the country at any position, and currently holds scholarship offers from Kentucky and Arizona, to name a few.
Duke desperately needs a player of his caliber on the court for them this upcoming season. With news that Grayson Allen will be returning for his senior season, the pairing of Allen and Duvall might be enough to launch Duke back into the national title conversation.
He’ll be a loaner, of course. It’s become uncommon for players who show exemplary levels of talent to stick around longer than one season at the collegiate level.
Many wouldn’t even do that if it weren’t for the fact that the NBA restricts players coming straight out of high school to declare themselves eligible for the draft. Regardless of how long he’ll be a Blue Devil is immaterial though.
All that coach Krzyzewski cares about at this point is that he coaches him at all.
