Duke basketball got another huge commitment this week, landing four-star Patrick Ngongba.
Earlier this week, Duke received a commitment from Cooper Flagg, the top player in the 2024 recruiting class.
A center, Ngongba is the No. 20 player in the nation according to 247Sports. He held offers from programs such as UConn, Kansas State, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan and Syracuse among others.

He had taken an official visit to UConn in mid-October.
The commitment of Ngongba solidifies Duke with the top recruiting class in the nation.
In addition to Ngongba and Flagg, the Duke 2024 recruiting class also features five-star forwards Isiah Evans and Kon Knueppel and a four-star guard in Darren Harris.
With five players committed to this class for Duke, it will be interesting to see how the Blue Devils finish out this class. They are rumored to be very strongly in the mix for Dylan Harper, a five-star guard from Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, New Jersey).
Harper is a consensus top-three player in the class and was the top player in the nation until Flagg re-classified and joined the 2024 class.
