PROFESSIONAL CAREER

RJ Barrett played one season of college basketball for Duke University (2018–2019), in which his 860 total points broke the single-season freshman scoring records for both the Blue Devils and the ACC.

Barrett was a five-star recruit out of high school and ranked the number one prospect in the class of 2018 by ESPN, Rivals.com, and Scout.com. He earned McDonalds All-American honors as a senior and was named the 2017-18 Gatorade National Player of the Year.
