Duke’s 2020 recruiting class is off to a good start after Paul VI junior guard Jeremy Roach verbally committed to the Blue Devils on Wednesday.

“I just felt like as soon as I went down there it was right for me,” Roach told “It was just a gut feeling in everybody’s stomach, even my sister, my brother, my dad and my mom. I went everywhere, I went to Kentucky and Villanova, I just didn’t feel the same way I did at Duke.”

Roach is rated a five-star and ranked the 15th best player in the 2020 class by Roach picked Duke over Kentucky, Villanova, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and others.

“I mean I feel like I fit in right away,” Roach told “They play my style, fast paced and if there’s nothing there you pull it out and run something. I just feel like it fits me perfectly.”

Roach, who is Duke’s first commitment in the 2020 recruiting class, missed his entire junior season due to a torn ACL.
