Getting Trevon Duval was huge for Duke this recruiting cycle. How huge?

He’s the difference between a team that might have struggled at times and one that could be as good as anyone in the country.

We got a brief glimpse of what Duke could do with an elite point guard when Kyrie Irving was a freshman and a better one with Tyus Jones, who was superb in 2015.

Duval could certainly have a similar impact. The best thing about any point guard - well, any real good one - is that he makes his teammates better. Keep in mind that they’re pretty good already.
