The other day Kennedy Chandler cut his list to five finalists, including Duke. Here’s a breakdown of all five teams he’s still considering and how he might fit in with them.

Here are some of the comments about Duke:

“Duke is yet another blueblood program in this final list that consistently experiences a ton of recruiting success...Duke currently boasts a pair of five-star guards in Jeremy Roach and DJ Steward that are expected to lead the way during this coming season. Both of those 2020 commits are ranked in the Top 25 of the class, though, and could be one-and-done prospects. Chandler would thus possibly be able to immediately slide into the starting point guard spot in their absences or even be paired with Roach for a dynamic duo.

“Either way, Duke will surely land one of the best 2021 classes in the entire nation and the program seems to have a clear view of its priorities. As of right now, Duke already has one commit in the class in the form of talented wing A.J. Griffin (No. 7 recruit). Additionally, the Blue Devils are one of the three schools in the final lists for Chandler and [Paolo] Banchero – Tennessee and Kentucky are the others.”

This one could be interesting. Stay tuned.
