2015 guard Luke Kennard commits to Duke basketball

Luke Kennard, the No. 24 prospect in the class of 2015 according to ESPN, announced his commitment to Duke basketball this evening.

A 6-foot-5 guard from Franklin, Ohio, Kennard made the announcement at his high school.

Kennard is Duke's first commit in the class of 2015 and made his decision after taking an official visit for Duke's win against North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium in March. Kennard was one of many top prospects on hand that evening, including Myles Turner (2014) and Chase Jeter (2015).

He averaged 40 points, 10.4 rebounds and four assists per game this year for Franklin High School.

Kentucky, Ohio State, Michigan, Louisville, North Carolina and Florida were among the other schools Kennard was considering.

"Not a ton of legit shooters in HS basketball, Luke Kennard is among the best in the 2015 class. High skill level too," recruiting analyst Evan Daniels tweeted after his announcement.
