By CHARLIE PARENT & ADAM ZAGORIA Dylan Harper, the No. 2 overall recruit in the class of 2024, will announce his college decision Wednesday, he announced on social media Monday. The 6-foot-6 combo guard out of Don Bosco Prep (NJ.) will choose between Rutgers, Duke, Indiana, Auburn and Kansas. Harper visited in-state Rutgers in October but hadn’t taken a visit since Nov. 2022, which was at Indiana. He saw Duke last October and has not been in contact with Kansas for the past few months, ZAGSBLOG’s Adam Zagoria reported.
Harper is the son of five-time NBA champion Ron Harper Sr. and the younger brother of former Rutgers star Ron Harper Jr. He broke down several of his options after USA Basketball Junior National Team Mini-Camp in April: Rutgers: “They said they’re really not recruiting me for my brother and what he did there, they’re really recruiting me for me and what I do.” And: “I think anywhere I go I’m just going to play how I play and play to win, really.” He added: “It’s always good to stay home but I think for me I’m really going to make the best decision I can.” Duke: “Just The Brotherhood culture they really have, the way they all come together.” Kansas: “Probably just the winning culture they have really. Every time you turn the TV on , not this year but the past three years, Final Four, national championship.” Indiana: “It was a great experience, great campus, great area. They told me they have that NBA play style that I could really fit into.” Auburn: “Just how Bruce Pearl lets his guys play at all times. When you turn the TV on, you always get to see the guards controlling the game at all times.” Follow Charlie on Twitter Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter Follow ZAGSBLOGHoops on Instagram And Like ZAGS on Facebook
