Five-star wing Justise Winslow picks Duke

Justise Winslow committed to Duke this afternoon, adding to 2014 recruiting class already ranked No. 1 in the nation. The five-star swingman is rated the No. 9 player in the country by Rivals.com.

The Blue Devils were regarded as the frontrunner heading into this afternoon, with UCLA making a late push this week as his second potential destination. The 6-foot-6 Winslow’s other finalists were Arizona, Florida and Texas A&M.

The Bruins secured a solid class during the early signing period with five-star forward Kevon Looney and four-star center Thomas Welsh, but the addition of Winslow would have pushed the haul to elite status.
