Jaemyn Brakefield became a rarely seen Duke one-and-done by announcing Wednesday that he intends to enter the transfer portal after his freshman season. Brakefield averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 boards but played only 12.5 minutes per game in the 2020-2021 season.

A former top-50 recruit, Brakefield was the fifth-highest ranked prospect of Duke's third-ranked 2020 recruiting class. He committed to Duke out of Huntington Prep over offers from Michigan, Louisville and Virginia along with a number of other suitors.
