PC Star Recruit David Duke Back Home For Tournament

Providence College's 2018 blue chip recruit, 6'3 guard David Duke.

David Duke, Providence College’s star recruit, who also happens to be a Providence native, was back home for Rhode Island College’s National Prep School Invitational Tournament on Sunday afternoon. 

Duke’s Cushing Academy cruised to victory over Maine’s Brigdon Academy.

Duke is ranked the 45th best college prospect according to ESPN’s rating system. He turned down offers from perennial powerhouse’s such as Syracuse and Villanova in favor of his hometown team.


Providence College basketball Coach Ed Cooley was on hand for Duke’s game on Sunday, sporting a New England Patriots hat–a nice choice for Super Bowl Sunday.
