Duke recruit Marvin Bagley III ruled eligible to play this season

The Blue Devils are going to be unstoppable next season.

Duke recruit Marvin Bagley III, a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, has been officially certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center to play in the upcoming collegiate season.

The status of Bagley was uncertain after he reclassified for 2017. Duke was obviously thrilled with the NCAA's decision to allow Bagley's move.

"From the outset of this process, we were optimistic that it would end with the NCAA Eligibility Center certifying Marvin to compete for Duke University in 2017-18," Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a press release.

"We are thrilled for Marvin and the Bagley family. Their organization and efficiency were key to the successful conclusion of the certification process, as were the efforts of our Duke Athletics administration."

Duke now boasts four five-star recruits in Bagley, Trevon Duval, Wendell Carter, and Gary Trent Jr., in addition to two four-star players, and existing stalwart Grayson Allen.
