Scout.com’s latest version of the class of 2013 player rankings were released last week.
Jabari Parker headlines the trio of Duke 2013 commits—which ranks as the No. 2 recruiting class overall—and he holds his spot at No. 2 overall in the class. The 6-foot-9 swingman still sits behind uncommitted small forward Andrew Wiggins, who is considering Kentucky, Florida State, North Carolina and Kansas.
Getting closer to prime form as the season wears on, Parker finished with 23 points and five rebounds for Simeon (19-2) in an easy 80-33 win over Coronado (Nev.) this past weekend.
Matt Jones sits at the No. 24 overall spot in the class, while 6-foot-6 wing Semi Ojeleye is right behind him at No. 25. The sharpshooting Jones—a 6-foot-4 off-ball guard—is the No. 3 shooting guard in the class and arguably the best shooter in the entire class.
The powerfully built and versatile Ojeleye— an Ottawa, Kan. native—is the seventh-ranked small forward in the class.
Ojeleye continues to play superbly as his Ottawa team remains unbeaten on the year. The most recent case of Ojeleye’s dominance took place Jan. 29 as he scored 40 points in just three quarters.
Here are some recent highlights of Ojeleye (No. 33 in red):
2014 Duke target Tyus Jones went off for 40 points over the weekend to help his Apple Valley (Minn.) team get a win.
Fellow junior Blue Devil recruit Theo Pinson was in Bloomington, Ind. over the weekend for an official visit to Indiana. The dynamic 6-foot-5 wing from nearby High Point, N.C. experienced ESPN’s College Gameday, as well as perhaps the best college basketball game this season. No. 3 Indiana earned a hard-fought win over No. 1 Michigan in front of an electric crowd at Assembly Hall.
In addition to the surging Hoosiers, North Carolina, Duke and N.C. State are thought to be strong contenders in the Pinson sweepstakes also.
Per a tweet by Garrett Tucker of Future150, the Blue Devil coaching staff is expressing interest in 2015 center Stephen Zimmerman. Zimmerman, a 6-foot-11 big man, has long thought to be one of the top players in the sophomore class. Attending the same high school as one-time Duke target and now UCLA Bruin Shabazz Muhammad, the Bishop Gorman product (Las Vegas, Nev.) holds offers from Arizona, Kansas, UNLV, and UCLA, among others, already.
