Five-star class of 2018 prospect Cameron Reddish announced his commitment to play at Duke on Friday night, electing to play for Coach K’s Blue Devils over offers from Villanova, Kentucky, UCLA, and UConn.

Since Marvin Bagley III reclassified to 2017, Reddish—the No. 3-ranked recruit in the class of 2018 according to ESPN—is the first top five prospect in his class to commit to a school.

A 6-foot-8 forward, with point guard skills and handles, Reddish fits the mold of positionless basketball. He can play at almost any position on the floor and is comfortable scoring at any level. Reddish possesses great athleticism and basketball IQ which radiates itself at both ends of the court.

In his junior season at Westtown (Pa.), he helped the Moose win back-to-back PAISAA State Championship titles since his sophomore year. This past year, he averaged 16.2 points per game en route to first team PIAA Class 3A All-State honors.

The Wildcats’ coaching staff had been keen on Reddish for a while, as they’ve kept a close eye on him for the last few years. They were one of the first few teams to get involved in his recruitment, offering him just before the start of his sophomore season at Westtown. However, they weren’t the only one—clearly—and Reddish garnered a lot of college attention playing for a stacked Westtown squad. His potential was apparent back in his younger days when he was still growing into his frame and wearing braces.
