Duke lands a commitment from top 20 shooter


Mike Miller

So you know how Duke has that reputation of being nothing but a bunch of jump shooters?

That may not be changing anytime soon. The Blue Devils landed a commitment from Matt Jones, one of the best shooters in the Class of 2013, on Monday night. Jones is a top 20 recruit nationally.

“After long consideration with my parents and people around me, we felt it was best that I commit to DUKE UNIVERSITY!,” Jones said in a tweet.

Jones, who is Duke’s first 2013 commitment, is the second guard currently committed to the Blue Devils out of the state of Texas. Rasheed Sulaimon, a guard in the class of 2012, has signed his letter of intent with Duke.
