Duke head coach Jon Scheyer, who has produced two straight top-notch recruiting classes, is already working on his next squad.
As he announced via Twitter Thursday night, 2024 five-star small forward Isaiah Evans has committed to Duke. Evans joins shooting guard Darren Harris, who committed Oct. 22, in the Blue Devils’ 2024 recruiting class.
A product of North Mecklenburg High School in Huntersville, N.C., Evans projects as a strong two-way player that can stretch the court and provide length on defense. He has the ability to disrupt passing lanes and handle the ball well in the open court. While he still has room to grow in the halfcourt, his jumpshot is smooth and projects well at the college level. ESPN ranks him as the No. 13 small forward in the class and the No. 3 player out of North Carolina, while 247 has him at No. 10 overall.
At 6-foot-8 and just 190 pounds, the high school junior certainly has room to gain strength, but his athleticism and shot-making ability make him a highly touted prospect. Before committing to Duke, Evans received offers from a number of Power Five schools including Florida State, Alabama and Arkansas.
