This rundown of the best players in the class of 2020 in Illinois from the Chicago Sun-Times really only has one point of interest for Duke fans and that is DJ Steward. Here’s what they have to say about the soon-to-be-Blue Devil:

“There was a reason Steward was a coveted high-major prospect and broke state’s recent drought of McDonald’s All-Americans. The Duke-bound guard brings extreme versatility to the backcourt. Steward is always in control and plays with poise. He uses subtle gear changes and length to get to the rim while showcasing an efficient three-point shot, both off the catch and dribble. Plus, he does all the smart, little things on the court that make him a coach’s dream.“

That sounds pretty good.

Also listed: Marcus Watson, who decommitted from Wake Forest recently. He’s described as “jet quick” and a good defender. Too bad he won’t be at Wake Forest.
