Add 247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer to the list of recruiting experts now predicting that five-star basketball prospect Matthew Hurt will ultimately end up at Duke.
Meyer logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of the Blue Devils on Hurt’s page Saturday morning, joining fellow 247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels and several other recruiting observers who have recently put in predictions for Duke.
Hurt is the No. 8 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite rankings for the 2019 class, and he’s one of Kentucky’s top remaining targets in that group. He has also taken official visits to Kansas and North Carolina.
A few days ago, Daniels and Rivals.com national analyst Corey Evans talked to the Herald-Leader about Hurt’s recruitment, their predictions and a possible decision timeline. You can read that story here.
