Marvin Bagley III — after ESPN made us sit through a block of baseball highlights, Ezekiel Elliott news, and an NBA rest essay to get to the reveal — announced he will be taking his talents to Duke.
Bagley, who is considered by many to be the best incoming freshman in the country, joins a loaded Duke starting lineup, which Kentucky Sports Radio projected earlier as follows:
G – Trevon Duval, Freshman (True point guard replacing Frank Jackson; top-ranked point guard and ranked fifth overall in the 2017 ESPN 100)
G – Gary Trent Jr., Freshman (Top-ranked shooting guard and seventh overall player in 2017 ESPN 100)
G – Grayson Allen, Senior (Veteran leader with championship experience; preseason Naismith Player of the Year candidate; NCAA All-American)
F – Marvin Bagley, Freshman
F/C – Wendell Carter Jr., Freshman (Top-ranked power forward and fourth overall player in 2017 ESPN 100)
As an aside, it feels like Grayson Allen has been there for a decade.
Commence the hate for this super-team…
