    Duke coach Jon Scheyer already has the No. 1 recruiting classes in 2022 and ’23 locked in — and he’s already working on future classes.

    Alier Maluk, the 6-foot-9 four-star Class of 2025 center from Imani Prep (PA), took an unofficial visit to campus on Saturday.

    “[Coach Scheyer] said I’m very versatile and he can’t wait to see me in the summer time,” Maluk said.

    He visited Pitt in August and also expects to visit Ohio State, Memphis and Michigan State in the “next couple months.”

    “He has a high basketball IQ with a passion to learn the game,” said Imani associate head coach Khayree Wilson. “He came in this year with a focus.”

    Maluk and Imani Prep open their season Dec. 2.

    Last month, Scheyer and his staff visited Montverde (FL) Academy to see Class of 2023 commit Sean Stewart as well as priority targets Asa Newell in the Class of 2024 and Cooper Flagg in ’25.
