Pace Academy five-star prospect Wendell Carter goes with Duke

Five-star prospect Wendell Carter will attend Duke next year. The power forward from Pace Academy announced his decision Wednesday morning, using a video released through his Twitter account.

Carter selected the Blue Devils over his three other finalists, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Harvard.

Without revealing his choice, Carter had said Monday that he had made his decision on Sunday based on his relationship with the coaches and the opportunity that he had at the school.

The video was made with Bleacher Report, a sports website that has developed a niche in producing creative videos for high school football and basketball prospects to announce their commitments. Carter’s video had a James Bond theme.
