    Duke seems to have a phenom on their hands. Jalen Johnson. He's 6' 9'', 220 and arguably in the conversation of the best in college basketball right now. As a freshman.

    Here's his debut:

    Just how good is this kid? He was a consensus five-start recruit out of high school, which you would expect for Duke to grab. But I was shocked to see how tall he is, being a small forward. Are we looking at the next future NBA superstar, or does he have weaknesses to his game that would prevent that?

    I don't know really anything about him. Just from the little I've seen and read, looks like the perfect recipe for a future NBA great.

    He definitely is a play maker. I was watching the video sorta with an NBA filter, like trying to imagine if it was an NBA game. Sounds silly, but I really could see him becoming an NBA great for sure.

    It's always interesting seeing these guys come out with huge first years. Those are my favorite to follow. Seems like most of the time they continue on being a NCAA star till they're drafted then end up being the small fish in a big pond.
