Five-star recruit Wendell Carter committed to the Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday.


The Duke Blue Devils landed their third prospect in the 2017 recruiting class on Wednesday, and it came in the form of five-star center/power forward Wendell Carter from Atlanta, Georgia.

Carter teamed up with Bleacher Report for a video inspired by James Bond.

Duke beat out the likes of home-state programs Georgia and Georgia Tech, as well as Harvard, to land the nation’s No. 4 overall prospect. He narrowed his list from eight to the four aforementioned schools in September.

Carter is listed at 6-foot-10 and 245 pounds, and is rated as the No. 4 center. He’s the second five-star commit in Duke’s 2017 class, with shooting guard Gary Trent of Napa, California, being the other. Trent is the nation’s No. 2 SG and No. 12 overall player.

Carter is also the second prospect Duke has pulled out of Georgia for 2017, with four-star shooting guard Alex O’Connell being the other. O’Connell is the nation’s No. 17 SG and No. 62 overall player.

As for Carter, Duke is getting an extremely efficient scorer underneath and around the basket, who is also developing his mid-to-3-point range shot. He’s also fantastic on the boards.

Carter has drawn comparisons to former Duke center Jahlil Okafor, who was the third pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
