Five-Star Duke Basketball Recruiting Target Announces Transfer

For his senior season, Naas Cunningham, who is still a finalist for the Duke basketball team, is moving to the West.

Following just one season at Overtime Elite (Ga.), long-time Naas Cunningham, a basketball recruit for Duke, announced on Monday afternoon that he will transfer to Southern California Academy for his senior year of high school.

Cunningham, a native of New Jersey who began his prep career at Gill St. Bernard’s School in New Jersey.), is a 6-foot-7, 180-pound small forward. Hines referred to him in his tweet as “one of the more interesting long-term prospects in the country.”

Even though the lanky Cunningham continues to have a five-star rating next to his name, it’s important to remember that he once peaked at No. 1 on the 247Sports 2024 although it has slipped to No. 18 overall during his time at Overtime Elite.

So, in that regard, the transfer is certainly logical. According to the tweet that follows, his new head coach is overjoyed to have him.

Naas Cunningham announced his final five candidates for his recruitment at the beginning of February. They were Duke, Kansas, Memphis, Rutgers, and UCLA. He didn’t shorten or adjust that list after that.

However, there hasn’t been much discussion about the Blue Devils’ participation in the race recently.

Cunningham and Dylan Harper, a top-20 basketball recruit for Duke in 2024 who possesses a No. 2 composite ranking and is also from In interviews, New Jersey discussed the potential for working together on a collegiate level.

In contrast, like Naas Cunningham, both of the Blue Devils’ 2024 commitments to date are small forwards. They are Darren Harris (4 stars) and Evans (5 stars).
