Nation's No. 2 high school basketball prospect Vernon Carey commits to Duke

Nation's No. 2 high school basketball prospect Vernon Carey commits to Duke

The center is a top-5 ranked players in the country and is the prized possession in this current recruiting class for Duke.

Duke didn't let the loss to Gonzaga affect it for long. Over his last two games, the freshman put up 53 points in 53 minutes on 22-of-28 shooting, logging 23 rebounds, dishing 11 assists and grabbing four steals.

When asked about his choice, Carey Jr. said it was one of the toughest decisions of his life, but it ultimately came down to playing for Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. What makes him special is his ability to dominate in the paint while also being effective with his face-up game.

Tennessee carries out second electrocution of death row inmate of year
Mr Dunham said he was not aware of any state other than Tennessee where inmates were choosing electrocution over lethal injection. The builder of Tennessee's electric chair had warned it could malfunction before the executions but the state went ahead anyway.


Like what you see here? Michigan State, which went down to the wire with Duke for Carey, is the perceived favorite in the 247Sports Crystal Ball.

We wrote about why Carey is the best player in this class from Peach Jam. The Blue Devils were led by Barrett (27 PTS, 15 REB, 4 AST, 10-14) and Williamson (18 PTS, 12 REB, 3 STL, 1 BLK) who combined for a whopping 45 PTS, 27 REB, 5 AST, including several highlight reels. Stewart and Carey will sign in the spring signing period in April. Coach K evolved his coaching system and revamped Duke as both a perennial contender and a one-and-done factory for the National Basketball Association. As the final buzzer rang, the Blue Devils came away with their 8th victory of the season, and handed the Hawks their 7th loss in the 30-point victory, 84-54.

Linebacker Joe Giles-Harris, quarterback Daniel Jones and cornerback Mark Gilbert have all been mentioned as potential early entrants in to this summer's NFL Draft. So good in fact, that they never have a rebuilding year.
