The Duke Blue Devils basically have to rebuild their entire roster for next season. With Sean Stewart becoming the seventh Duke player to enter the transfer portal and Jared McCain and Kyle Filipowski going pro, the Blue Devils will have almost entirely new personnel next year. Tyrese Proctor and Caleb Foster are returning but everyone else will be new faces.

Duke will rely on the nation's best freshmen class next season. Led by Cooper Flagg and Khaman Maluach, the Blue Devils will be the team to watch next year. However, Jon Scheyer needs to fill out the rest of the roster with upperclassmen from the transfer portal.

And it looks like they are hard at work to do precisely that. According to the latest reporting by Travis Branham of 247Sports, Duke is on the shortlist of a prized point guard in the transfer portal.

BYU's starting point guard Dallin Hall has Duke on his list of schools for next season after deciding to transfer following coach Mark Pope's departure to Kentucky.

BYU Guard Dallin Hall Considering Duke As His Next School

However, despite the coach who recruited him going to Kentucky, Hall is reportedly not considering the Wildcats as his next destination.

Hall is a 6'4 point guard entering his junior season. Starting in 51 games for BYU in the last two seasons, Hall has averaged 8.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game, while hitting 36.2% of his threes on 3.6 attempts.

Considering that the Blue Devils only need a backup point guard, bringing in an experienced player who knows how to run an offense and doesn't make many mistakes could have some value.
