As first reported by NY2LASports, junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon has committed to Duke. The news was confirmed to CBSSports.com by a source close to Sulaimon and his family.
Days after picking up a commitment from forward Alex Murphy, the Blue Devils nabbed another five-star player in Sulaimon.
The 6-foot-3 prospect from Strake Jesuit College Prep (Tex.) visited the Durham campus for Duke’s comeback win over North Carolina on Wednesday night.
While Murphy is more of a versatile point-forward, Sulaimon is a pure scorer. He has deep range and a quick release on his 3-point shot and also knows how to get to the basket. Sulaimon is aggressive and is capable of huge games if he gets hot. He also continues to get better, and will be an immediate impact player when he arrives on campus.
Duke is still in the mix for top-five prospect Shabazz Muhammad in the 2012 class.
