Rivals.com national analyst Eric Bossi has logged a Future Cast prediction in favor of Duke for Patrick Baldwin Jr., a Kentucky target and the No. 3 overall player in the class of 2021.
The pick, which was made Wednesday, shouldn’t come as a major surprise. Duke has long been seen as a favorite in Baldwin’s recruitment, and this is further indication that the Blue Devils are in a good spot to land the top-five prospect. Baldwin — a 6-foot-9 small forward from Milwaukee — was one of the first players in the 2021 class to land a UK scholarship offer.
