    Jeremy Roach, the 6-foot-2 point guard from Paul VI Catholic (VA), announced his commitment to Duke on Wednesday night.

    Roach picked the Blue Devils over Kentucky, North Carolina, and Villanova.

    “I just felt like it was the right fit for me and I had a gut a feeling that it was too,” he said. “I’m going to bring toughness, defense, leadership, scoring, everything.”

    Mike Krzyzewski and his staff are receiving a physically gifted guard who is a gritty scorer and does a great job of leading his team.

    “Jeremy is a pure point and leader,” Paul VI coach Glenn Farello said. “His explosiveness and competitiveness combined with his high basketball IQ makes him a complete guard.”

    According to 247Sports, Roach is a five-star prospect, ranked No. 14 nationally, and is the No. 2 point guard.

    He is the first five-star in the 2020 class to commit and also is the first Duke commit in the class. The Blue Devils are also in the hunt for five-stars Jalen JohnsonScottie BarnesBrandon Boston, and Walker Kessler.

    Duke also has the No. 1 recruiting class in 2019 according to 247Sports.
