The Duke Blue Devils desperately needed a Point Guard for their upcoming season. They haven't been dominant since they had a legit point guard in Tyus Jones. Grayson Allen is a great player but doesn't fill that role of running the offense. Luckily for them, they just landed the top point guard in the country. Trevon Duval committed to Duke on Monday morning.

Who is Trevon Duval?

Trevon Duval is a dominant point guard coming out of IMG Academy.

A Mcdonalds All-American, Duval brings an athletic build and can do it all. Standing at 6'3", Duval can score, pass, and shoot just as good as any guard in the country. His elite skill set comes from his athleticism. Duval can attack the defense and make athletic moves for finishes and dunks. When the defense steps back, Duval will pull up for a three.

A very underrated part of his game is his passing ability.

Duval played with high-profile players at IMG and facilitated well. He can throw solid lobs and can fit pocket passes through tight windows to shooters. Duval is really valuable in transition and if he's the point guard of your team, you'll be in good shape. Duval can attack in transition and either find the open man or take it straight to the rim.

Impact for Duke

Duke got a solid player with this commitment.

The Blue Devils were missing a point guard badly. Since Tyus Jones, they haven't had a real floor general like other dominant teams in the country. For instance, Kansas had Frank Mason, Kentucky had Tyler Ulis and De'Aaron Fox, and UCLA had Lonzo Ball. Teams that have a dominant point guard are a lot better offensively than those without.

The Blue Devils can use him in transition alongside athletic wing Grayson Allen nicely.

Their offense will be solid with Allen off the ball. The more he can be a guy to get the ball on the wing instead of at the top, the better he will be. This addition for Duke is huge for their program. Duval has been dominating the competition and was even dominating other top recruits when he was at the McDonald's All-American camps. With this addition, Duke will have the Final Four in their sights.

They still need to work through a weak rotation, but landing Duval is a solid start.
