We recently finished an interview with the #14 overall class of 2012 shooting guard Duke-commit. Sulaimon attends Strake Jesuit College Prep in Texas and stands at 6’3”, 175. He talked to us about why he chose Duke, why he committed so early, and much more so make sure you check on Monday to see the full transcript of our interview with him. To see why he’s such a highly touted recruit, check out our evaluation of him below:
14. Rasheed Sulaimon SG (Duke)- Sulaimon is an athletic, big-time scorer who can knock it down from behind the arc, pull-up for a mid-range jumper, or slash to the basket where he either kicks it out to the open man (perfect for Coach K’s system) or finishes in the lane. He is always in attack mode whether he’s on offense or defense and has a quick first step which allows him to get by his initial defender on a consistent basis where he can utilize his excellent mid-range game. Although he isn’t a great defender now, he has a lot of potential and looks to develop into a lock-down defender at the next level given all his physical tools. He can improve some on his ball-handling and strength but he’s another great get for Duke.
