Reddish will wear blue. Duke was long considered an overwhelming favorite to land five-star small forward Cam Reddish. On Friday night, it became official. Reddish verbally committed to the Blue Devils via Twitter, in partnership with The Players Tribune. The dynamic wing, who is projected to be a one-and-done player, chose Duke over Connecticut, Kentucky, Villanova and UCLA. The 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction composite had Duke at 100 percent prior to Reddish's announcement. Duke now has two pledges in its 2018 class, both of them five-star guys. Tre Jones, the younger brother of former Duke point guard/current Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Tyus Jones, committed to Mike Krzyzewski's program Aug. 13. Reddish, ranked fourth in 247 Sports' composite, and Jones, ranked sixth, are the only 2018 players in the top 12 who have committed. The 6-foot-8 confirmed his standing as a top-five prospect in the class of 2018 earlier this summer, when he averaged 23 points and eight rebounds on Nike's prestigious EYBL circuit. He was selected to play for Team USA's U19 squad as well. That team was coached by Kentucky's John Calipari, but Duke has long been considered the leader.
