Even after landing a few commits already, Keith Dambrot and Duquesne are still working hard in the transfer portal, and the hard work is paying off.
On March 31, 6-foot-7 forward Kaiden Rice, a grad transfer from The Citadel, announced his final 8 schools, a list that included the Dukes.

Alongside Duquesne on the list are UAB, Loyola-Chicago, Butler, USF, William and Mary, Arizona, and South Alabama.
A four-year player at The Citadel, Rice sits third all time at the school in three pointers made, with 274. This season, he played an average of 33.8 minutes, while scoring 17.6 points per game and grabbing 4.2 rebounds per game. He led the team in 3-pointers by far, draining 92 of his team-high 264 attempts on the year (35%).
His best game of the season came against VMI, when he went nine for 15 from the field, including seven for ten on three-point attempts en route to a 29-point performance.
A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Rice only held two offers coming out of high school, Army and The Citadel. Now, he has narrowed his list to eight, and will be making his decision in the near future.
