High-flying Recruit wants to hear from Duke basketball coaches

Combine Academy (NC) small forward Rakease Passmore doesn’t yet appear on the Duke basketball recruiting wishlist despite his Blue Devil fandom (more on that in a minute).

For that matter, Passmore still doesn’t even show up on most sites’ 2024 rankings.

But the 6-foot-6, 185-pound unrated rising junior has been focusing on hoops for only a few years, per his conversation with Jason Jordan of SI.com this week.

In middle school, Passmore shone as a light-footed quarterback until a concussion in the eighth grade caused his mother to demand that he steer clear of the gridiron. Although he’s playing catchup on the hardwood, his 21 points per game for Garner Road (NC) on the Adidas 3SSB circuit this summer suggest he is on the right track.
