Keith Dambrot and his staff continue working to fill out their 2017 recruiting class.
Over the weekend, the Dukes landed a commitment from versatile Michigan guard Eric Williams.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Williams becomes the second player that the new staff has landed for the Class of 2017, earlier getting 6-foot-9 forward Marko Krivacevic.
From what I understand, Duquesne is looking to add 2-3 more players for this year’s class.
Who are some candidates to fill out the class?
Jack Ballantyne: I’m told that this Michigan forward, who’s already visited Duquesne, will pick between Duquesne and Detroit. Look for a decision in the next couple of days.
Nicholas Kratholm: This 6-foot-8 forward from IMG Academy in Florida visited Duquesne over the weekend.
David Collins: This First Love guard visited South Florida over the weekend. He also plans on making another visit to Duquesne, Akron and a fourth school before making his final decision in early May.
Tydus Verhoeven: This is the latest player to receive an offer from Duquesne. This 6-foot-6 forward from Manteca, California picked up an offer from the Dukes over the weekend. I’m trying to confirm this but Verhoeven reportedly is making a visit to Duquesne today. 247 Sports rates Verhoeven as a 3-star prospect.
Jermaine Jackson: A guard from Michigan is teammates with and made an official visit recently with Ballantyne.
One other note, Jon Rothstein reports that Miami (Ohio) Marcus Weathers transfer plans an upcoming visit to Duquesne. According to the report, Weathers will visit Duquesne on April 22nd. This past season, the freshman averaged 10 points-per-game and 6 rebounds-per-game for Miami, Ohio.
