It's been a pretty good week for the Duke Blue Devils. Just a few days after picking up junior five-star forward Alex Murphy they have added another high level junior as Rasheed Sulaimon committed to Duke on Thursday night.
A 6-foot-3 junior combo guard at Houston (Texas) Strake Jesuit, Sulaimon was in attendance for Wednesday night's comeback win against North Carolina and decided to pull the trigger.
"He's always loved Duke," said Marland Lowe who has coached and mentored Sulaimon during the summers. "He loves the academics, he loves the history and he loves the coaching staff. The door was open so he decided to get it done."
A fundamentally sound backcourt player, Sulaimon has proved his worth with both his high school teams and during the summer with the Houston Hoops. More of a natural shooting guard, he's learning to play the point and should be able to help out at both spots before he's done in Durham.
"He can be a very good in college," Lowe told Rivals.com. "He's like the type of weapons that they have now. He's a threat from long range and he's a threat to attack the basket. His passing has gotten a lot better and he's a great defender."
