Consensus five-star class of 2018 prospect Cameron Reddish will be donning the blue and white next year, and it won’t be for his hometown team.
The Philadelphia-native announced his commitment to play at Duke on Friday night, opting to play for Coach K’s Blue Devils over offers from Kentucky, UConn, UCLA, and Villanova.
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 since Marvin Bagley III reclassified to 2017.
A 6-foot-8 forward with point guard skills, Reddish can seemingly almost play anywhere on the floor. In his junior season at Westtown, he helped the Moose to winning back-to-back PAISAA State Championship titles and 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.
With Reddish off the board, it seems like it will be all in for Jay Wright and his staff to focus on Jalen Carey and David Duke, two four-star class of 2018 guards who have been high on Villanova’s target list.
