Dylan Cardwell, a 6-11 kid (2020) averaged seven ppg, 8.7 rpg and 2.6 blocks as a junior.

That’s not typically a profile for a Duke recruit but Duke has expressed interest. Even Cardwell says it was a “shock” but he should pay attention because Duke is usually pretty good about spotting talent and has been all over Georgia lately too.

What did they like? Caldwell: “We had a good conversation, they were telling me that they felt like I could be a guy that would fit in on and off the court. They told me that they loved how I rebound and block shots at a high rate, finished with both hands and just play high energy ball.”

Sounds pretty good from here.
