Duke has the third-most proposals this season with three.

The players have also received the most offers from a wide variety of other schools, with nine different schools offering.
“I think what I saw in the first half of the season was that Duke is the team that was giving us the best offers, which was surprising,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
“We didn’t have the best player.
We didn’t really have the most talent.
But in the second half of our season, I think we’ve figured out a lot of different things and that’s what’s made us successful.
I’m really excited about the fact that we’re going to have a few guys come in here.”
Bryan Boggs, who plays for Georgetown, had the most first-year offers, including a verbal from the Hoyas, as did former Duke forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who played for Duke from 2012-13.
The 6-foot-8, 200-pounder is currently the Blue Devils’ No. 2 center.
The most offered players were Duke’s Tobey and Blackmon, who both have offers from other schools.
Tobey received an offer from Ohio State, while Blackmon was offered from Texas A&M, according to ESPN.
In the first five weeks of the college basketball season, Tobey has been offered the No. 1 and No. 3 spots by Duke, Kentucky and Florida State, respectively.
He was also offered the opportunity to be the No, 2 or 3 recruit in the Class of 2019, according the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Blackmon, a freshman forward, was the most-talked-about recruit, but Tobey’s interest led him to Duke.
He is the No 2 overall recruit in Duke’s Class of 2020 and was a consensus All-American by Scout.com, according.
Duke also has four players who have verbally committed to other schools: guard Johnathan Motley, guard Travin Dural, guard De’Anthony Thomas and guard Isaiah Hicks.
