The Duke Blue Devils have maintained their dominance in men’s college basketball recruiting even after the retirement of Mike Krzyzewski. New head coach Jon Scheyer landed the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in the country in his first year in charge with the class of 2022, and his haul in the class of 2023 ranked second in the country only behind Kentucky.

On Monday, Duke landed its next superstar by securing a commitment from Cooper Flagg, the consensus No. 1 player in the class of 2024. Flagg is considered the top prospect in high school basketball regardless of class, and is positioned as the front-runner to be selected with the first pick in the 2025 NBA Draft.The 11 best Duke men's basketball players of the decade | NCAA.com

Flagg immediately joins the list of Duke’s best recruits ever in the modern era, but where exactly does he place? With a new freshman star on the horizon, we decided to rank Duke’s best recruits in the one-and-done era, which started with the 2006 NBA Draft.

These rankings will factor in the RSCI (Recruiting Services Consensus Index), but will also include in the hype around the player during their enrollment at Duke. Kyle Singler, Tyus Jones, Trevon Duval, and Vernon Carey count as honorable mentions.
