Any time a college program can land a player who has drawn comparisons to Jayson Tatum, it is a good day on the recruiting trail.

That is exactly what happened to the Duke Blue Devils on Friday when Mackenzie Mgbako joined their 2023 recruiting class. He is the second five-star recruit to commit to Duke over the last two days, joining Tyrese Proctor.

Mgbako, who checks in at 6'7" and 185 pounds, is a 5-star prospect, per 247Sports' composite rankings. He is also the No. 3 overall player, No. 1 small forward and No. 2 player from the state of New Jersey in his class.

The list of interested programs at one point included Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Memphis, Ohio State and Michigan.
