Grad Year / Position: 2016 – Point Guard
School / Hometown: Grayson HS (Lawrenceville, Ga.)
Committed College: Undecided
Date: March 5, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: #EBATop40 Camp
Dukes competed at the Top 40 camp and showed the experience and poise that helped lead his Grayson Rams to the Sweet 16 this year. The 6-foot point guard is a confident ball handler and play-maker. Given his skill set and success that he experienced this season, expect Dukes to find himself on a college roster next season. A week after the #EBATop40 camp, he picked up an offer from Georgia College & State University.
Dukes showed solid guard skills at the camp as he made plays on both ends of the floor here at Central Gwinnett. He played both with the ball in hands and on the wing. He is a quick slasher to the bucket, but he also showed the ability to hit the spot up jumper. He is set to team up with fellow senior Alphonso Willis for the Grayson Rams to make up one of the most talented and experienced back courts in region 7-AAAAAA this year.
Dukes showed exceptional ball skill at the EBA Top 40 Workout as a point guard. He has the ability to pass the ball effectively and handle the ball under pressure. Look for Dukes to develop and continue to add experience as he works with his high school coach, Geoffrey Pierce, over the next few years. He is a kid full of promise and waiting for the right opportunity to shine.
