Five-star F Kon Knueppel commits to Duke

Kon Knueppel, a five-star small forward in the Class of 2024, committed to Duke on Thursday.

Knueppel visited the Durham, N.C., campus over the weekend after also visiting Wisconsin and Virginia.

Ranked No. 15 overall and the No. 6 small forward in his class by the 247Sports composite, Knueppel hails from Milwaukee and will play his senior year of high school at Wisconsin Lutheran.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound wing is the third commitment of the cycle for second-year Duke coach Jon Scheyer. The Blue Devils already had commitments from small forwards Isaiah Evans, a five-star, and Darren Harris, a four-star.

Duke’s class moved up to No. 2 in 247Sports’ rankings, behind only rival North Carolina.
