Another 247Sports analyst is predicting that top UK basketball recruiting target Matthew Hurt will ultimately end up at Duke.
247Sports expert Brian Snow, who has followed Hurt’s recruitment closely and specializes in Midwest prospects, logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of the Blue Devils on Tuesday morning. Duke has a majority of picks on Hurt’s Crystal Ball page. UK, Kansas and North Carolina have also hosted him for official visits, and the Jayhawks had previously been seen as the favorite in his recruitment.
Snow joins 247Sports national analysts Evan Daniels and Jerry Meyer in picking Duke for Hurt, who is the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Hurt’s birthday — April 20 — has been mentioned as a possible college announcement date for the 6-foot-9 forward from Minnesota.
