The Duke Blue Devils national title hopes received a significant boost when Marvin Bagley III was officially on campus. His addition single-handedly vaulted them as the favorite to win the NCAA title.
Now that videos are surfacing of Bagley III in practice, it’s easy to see why.
Keep in mind that he’s competing against players who at were point were also considered among the best prep recruits in the country.
In his latest highlight video, Bagley appears to be every bit of the player that made him the top recruit in the nation.
Granted, it says “Team Bagley” in the corner; it isn’t going to show clips of him getting taken to task. This is 1:17 of what was a long team practice. All the same though, he appears to be in sync with his teammates early on, and flashed the ability to take over a game if he needs to.
The key to Duke’s success might hinge on how well he is able to play with Grayson Allen. The controversial Blue Devil decided to return to the team for another season, and stands head-and-shoulders above the rest of his team in terms of experience.
