The future depth for Duquesne at the guard position just got better with the addition of a player from Michigan.
This afternoon, 2020 3-star combo guard Tyson Acuff (6’3″, 175) from Cass Technical School in Detroit, Michigan gave a commitment to the Dukes. Back at the end of September, PSN told you about Acuff making his official visit to Duquesne.

Prior to committing to Keith Dambrot’s program, Acuff also held offers from UMass, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Siena, Toledo, Cleveland State, Georgia State and Oakland and becomes Duquesne’s second commitment in their Class of 2020 following Jett Roesing from First Love Academy.
To find out more about the type of player Duquesne is receiving, PSN spoke with Endless Motor Sports, a basketball publication from Michigan and an NCAA Approved Scouting Service.
“Tyson is a point guard with good positional size at 6’3″-6’4″. He thrives in ballscreen action as a scorer that finishes well at the rim with good body control. He’s improved his outside shot considerably over the last two years and is now hitting pull-up jumpers off the bounce in addition to catch and shoot attempts as an off-ball guard. Defensively, he has some real potential based on his size/length at the point guard spot.”
At least on paper for 2020, they’ll have guard depth with Sincere Carry (junior), Lamar Norman (junior), Tavian Dunn-Martin (senior), Evan Buckley (sophomore), Acuff and Roesing.
