Duke pursuing more top-end hoops talent in the 2017 class

DURHAM, N.C. — While Duke is still hoping to add 6-10 center Marques Bolden to its already stellar 2016 basketball recruiting class, the Blue Devils are busy in their work to add talent in 2017.

After the 2016-17 season, Duke will lose two seniors — Amile Jefferson and Matt Jones. Three of the freshmen — Jayson Tatum, Harry Giles and Frank Jackson — are projected as strong one-and-done possibilities. Rising junior guard Grayson Allen could also leave for the NBA after completing his degree in three years.

That’s six available scholarships for Duke to offer on the recruiting trail as the coaches look to replenish the roster. How will Mike Krzyzewski and his staff fill those open spots?
