Highly touted wing Dariq Whitehead committed to the Duke Blue Devils, according to ESPN's Paul Biancardi.

Whitehead is the No. 3 small forward and sixth-best player nationally in the 2022 class, per 247Sports' composite rankings.

247Sports' Jerry Meyer evaluated the Montverde Academy star last November and compared him to Jarrett Culver, who spent two years at Texas Tech prior to getting selected in the first round of the 2019 NBA draft:

"Solid size for a wing. Has quick-twitch athleticism. Fast with the basketball. Loves to attack the rim, but has a smooth jumper. Three-level scorer. Has a great pull up jumper going left. Solid ball-handler and passer who plays with awareness and instincts. Rebounds his position well. Has tremendous potential as a versatile defender."
