Not every high schooler heading to Duke's storied basketball program is a five-star recruit. Jordan Goldwire, a three-star point guard ranked 327th in 247 Sports' composite rankings, chose the Blue Devils this week after late interest from Mike Krzyzewski. "This is crazy," Goldwire said, via ESPN.com. "Something I never expected." Goldwire, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound guard from Norcross High near Atlanta, averaged 12 points and seven assists per game the past season. Despite Duke's tenuous point guard situation, Goldwire didn't think he was on the Blue Devils' radar, and was about to commit to a different school. "I was going to commit to Eastern Kentucky, but Duke showed interest recently, and it was something I couldn't pass up," Goldwire said. Duke is in serious need of a point guard after Frank Jackson declared for the NBA Draft. He has not yet hired an agent, so he could return, but even Jackson is more of a shooting guard.
Jordan Goldwire commits to Duke over … Eastern Kentucky?
