With Duke securing one of the best group of incoming recruits in the nation with its Class of 2019, it's now time for the Blue Devils to set their sights on the next class. 

And Duke just got out to a head start, securing the first commitment from a five-star player in the Class of 2020.

Wednesday evening, five-star guard Jeremy Roach announced that he will join the Blue Devils on a video from his Twitter account. The Leesburg, Va., native is the No. 14 recruit in his class.

Roach is the first member of Duke's 2020 class, and is noted for his playmaking and ball-handling skills. 

The Blue Devils have also been linked to 2020 prospects Jalen Johnson and B.J. Boston, the No. 3 and No. 6 recruits, respectively. Both Johnson and Boston attended last fall's Countdown to Craziness, and 247Sports pegs Duke as the favorite to land each.
