5-Star SF Jalen Johnson Verbally Commits to Duke over Kentucky, Arizona, More

The Duke Blue Devils made a major splash on the recruiting trail Thursday when they landed small forward Jalen Johnson to their 2020 class.

Johnson told Evan Daniels of 247Sports he was picking Duke over Arizona, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

"I picked them because how much of a priority I was for them and the potential they see in me," he said. "It was just a different vibe that I got with them and it was just great since my first conversation with them."

Johnson checks in at 6'8" and 215 pounds and is a 5-star prospect, per 247Sports' composite rankings.
