5-Star Center Vernon Carey Verbally Commits to Duke

Duke basketball recruiting update: Vernon Carey makes his selection between Duke, UNC and Michigan State Vernon Carey Jr. Commits To Duke

The 6-foot-10, 275-pound senior chose Duke over Michigan State, North Carolina and nearby Miami - where his father, Vernon Carey, shined before becoming an National Football League first-round pick.

We already know how special this current freshman class is, and it looks the 2019 recruiting is shaping up to be just as impressive.

Vernon Carey Jr, from University Prep, drives by a Gulliver Prep player during the Hoophall Miami Showcase in Miami past year.

With Carey joining the fold, Duke's recruiting class is starting to take shape and now ranks No. 6 overall.

Lucas Torreira is an example for Arsenal players due to his high level of physical condition , according to Unai Emery. Dalot's quick adaptation to life in Manchester has no doubt been aided by his near-flawless English.

Carey's commitment to Duke continues what has been an elite run of recruiting at the program under Mike Krzyzewski since 2013. "They see me as a positionless player".

He's a decorated high school player and won a gold medal with USA Basketball over the summer. Carey averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds and was named to the all-tournament team.

Carey joins Wendell Moore, a five-star forward and Boogie Ellis, a four-star combo guard, among high school recruits in the 2019 class who have pledged to Duke, giving the Blue Devils a top-10 class nationally. If Jones leaves for the league, as many have predicted due to him being projected as a first- or second-round draft pick, it would be a feather in the cap of the coaching staff on the recruiting trail. Even though Tom Izzo from Michigan State doesn't recruit all the way down in Florida, Michigan State missed out on Carey by a thin margin according to his father.

Duke is going bowling for the sixth time in the last seven season, and this year the Blue Devils will be spending the holiday season in balmy Shreveport, Louisiana.
