    The legend of Joe Girard continues to grow.

    Duke became the latest school to offer the 6-foot-1 Class of 2019 combo guard from Glens Falls (N.Y.) High school during his visit on Wednesday.

    “[Coach K] likes my toughness, leadership and he said I’m the best shooter in the country,” Girard told ZAGSBLOG.

    “I’m really excited about it!”

    A two-sport star, Girard recently surpassed Lance Stephenson to become New York State’s all-time leading scorer. He’s averaging 50 points per game and will now shoot for 3,000 career points in his career.

    Syracuse, Rutgers, Oklahoma and Michigan also offered Girard recently.
