5-star Center Vernon Carey Jr. commits to Duke

Duke pulled off yet another massive recruiting victory on Thursday when Vernon Carey Jr., the No. 2 prospect in the nation for 2019, announced his commitment to Coach K's team.

Carey, 6-foot-10, is a standout five-star recruit and one of the best big men from the class of 2019.

Michigan State has done well with the recruits it has landed through the years, but it always stings the locals when guys like Carey go elsewhere on a regular basis and that's sure been the case with Duke and MSU or late.

Carey, a 6'10 center with the ability to play multiple positions, would have been the highest-rated player to ever commit to Michigan State, according to 247 Sports, just ahead of Shannon Brown in 2003.

Carey's commitment to Duke continues what has been an elite run of recruiting at the program under Mike Krzyzewski since 2013.

He's a decorated high school player and won a gold medal with USA Basketball over the summer.

Carey's father played football at Miami and for the Miami Dolphins. He was drafted second overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Last month, Carey named Duke, Michigan State, and North Carolina his three finalists, but multiple recruiting analysts predicted the decision would come down to the Spartans and Blue Devils.

It's far from the first time that a highly-regarded recruit has picked Duke over Michigan State.

Duke is going bowling for the sixth time in the last seven season, and this year the Blue Devils will be spending the holiday season in balmy Shreveport, Louisiana.
