T.J. Walker on Marvin Bagley's Decision, Simi Shittu's Recruitment

08/15/2017 05:52 PM

Marvin Bagley, the nation’s number one high school player in the class of 2018, announced that he is reclassifying to 2017 and will play for Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils this season. Bagley still has to be cleared by the NCAA, but if he is eligible to play, this is a big get for Coach K. The move gives Duke the number one ranked recruiting class in 2017 and Vegas oddsmakers bumped Duke’s odds of winning a title from 7-to-1 to 3-to-1.

T.J. Walker of Cats Illustrated joined KSTV to discuss Bagley’s decision and how it will play out this upcoming season. He also touches on the recruitment of 2018 power forward Simi Shittu, who recently included Kentucky in his top 10 list.
