Caleb Houston is now down to four schools: Duke, Virginia, Alabama and Michigan.

Around 6-7 or 6-8 and 200 lbs. - listings differ depending on where you go - Houstan is a native of Mississauga, Canada and is playing at Montverde down in Florida.

If that rings a bell, it’s because that’s the same path that RJ Barrett took on his way to Duke.

Obviously that doesn’t mean Houstan will do the same thing - we don't even know if they know each other, although you’d think they would, and we have no idea if Houstan even likes Barrett or would consider following in his footsteps.

Duke is at least in his final four. Notably not in his Final Four: UNC. A lot of UNC partisans thought the Tar Heels had a great shot at Houstan.

His coach, Kevin Boyle, says this about Houstan: “I think he shot 53 or 54 percent from three last year and that’s every single day for the last two years. He’s just an incredible, incredible shooter, and when he’s open you feel like it’s going in. He’s got good range. He’s good shooting off screens and off of movement. He’s capable of being a big-time shooter and a guy you can run off screens to get good shots. He’s also an incredible worker.”
