Duke Basketball reaches out to rising recruit, lifelong Blue Devil fan

Hudson Greer has moved up 26 spots since this time last year to No. 28 overall on the 247Sports 2025 Composite. Although the junior from Lake Travis High School (Texas) is still just outside of five-star status, he appears to have recently piqued the interest of Duke basketball recruiters.

“Another team that just reached out to me is Duke,” Greer told League Ready this weekend after naming Alabama, Creighton, Arizona, Texas and UCLA as the schools he hears from the most.

Perhaps the Blue Devils’ interest will eventually match the 6-foot-4, 190-pound polished wing’s apparent interest in Duke. He confirmed to League Ready that he grew up a fan of the blueblood program in Durham during the final years of Mike Krzyzewski’s legendary reign.

But Greer added that he was impressed with what Coach K’s successor, Jon Scheyer, has accomplished in his two years at the helm.

“I mean, growing up, I always saw guys like Brandon Ingram and Jayson Tatum and of course Zion (Williamson),” Hudson Greer said of the early days of his Duke basketball fandom before showing his appreciation for Blue Devils who starred in Durham before he was born. “And then another guy I listened to on his podcast, JJ Redick, just watching those guys shoot the ball, along with Christian Laettner — I loved his documentary.

“Just what I’ve seen from their head coach now, just great. If I had the chance to go there, it would be a great opportunity.”
