Duke has landed a commitment from Illinois grad transfer Jacob Grandison.
The 6-foot-6 guard from Oakland averaged 9.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season.
Grandison announced he would be withdrawing from the NBA draft May 29 and entered the transfer portal two days later
“It became clear that I fit with the vision that Coach Scheyer has for Duke basketball,” Grandison said to On3.com. ”I’m an elite passer to anyone. I’m a shooter and I space the floor. I’m an elite cutter and I’ve proven myself to be a great decision maker. I’m poise under pressure and I play to win. Duke is winning.”
He joins a six-man recruiting class ranked No. 1 in the nation for 2022 along with transfers Kale Catchings and Ryan Young.
