After Boogie Ellis boogied on, Duke lost the theoretical first place recruiting class for 2019.

We say theoretical because you never know how recruits (Joey Beard) are going to work out. You just have to wait and see.

Still, it’s a good group.

Here’s a ranking of the current top five classes. Duke’s in a slightly different situation than it has been of late. It’s not #1 but for the first time in a while, the Blue Devils can build around a returning point guard in Tre Jones. The questions this year isn’t whether it’s ranked as the top class or not but rather how they will fit around Jones.
