The Duquesne Dukes have added a second player to their Class of 2021.
Mt. Zion Prep point guard Primo Spears has given a commitment to play for Keith Dambrot and the Dukes. Spears is a player that the Duquesne staff has been evaluating for a while and they officially offered him a scholarship back on March 9.
The 6’2″ Spears is a talented two way guard with the quickness to create his own shot, the skill to defend at a high level and the absolute ability to score and fill up the stat sheet. Spears is a native of Connecticut but chose to do a post-grad prep season at Mt. Zion.

Prep Hoops.com had this evaluation of Spears overall game- “Spears’ decision making as both a scorer and passer fit the mold for what Division I programs seek in their guards. His toughness, willingness on defense and communication on both ends are intangibles give even more reason why programs should be tracking him closely.”
Duquesne entered this off-season with the goal of strengthening their depth at point guard by adding both a young and veteran one. The addition of Spears gives them their young guard to play with either Tyson Acuff or a grad transfer that they hope to add in the near future. A top target for that transfer could be VMU transfer Greg Parham, who will be making a decision in the near future.
