After falling just short of an appearance in the Final Four this season, the Duke Blue Devils will have an entirely different roster next season. Duke head coach Jon Scheyer has seen multiple players hit the transfer portal, including Jeremy Roach (Baylor) and Mark Mitchell (Mizzou), and two players declare for the 2024 NBA Draft (Kyle Filipowski and Jared McCain).

That said, all hope is not lost for the Blue Devils as they’ve picked up a couple of commitments in the transfer portal and have a star-studded freshman class that will make them a threat to win the national title next season. 

Also, did we mention that Tyrese Proctor is coming back? Proctor’s return should bring stability to the floor as Duke works in a brand-new cast of players. Below, we’ll look at the Blue Devils’ projected depth chart heading into next season.

Despite losing McCain to the 2024 NBA Draft, the Blue Devils are still in great shape at the guard spot.

As previously mentioned, Scheyer will lean on Proctor, who is coming off a solid sophomore season with the Blue Devils. The 6-foot-5 Australian guard averaged 10.5 points, 3.7 assists, and 3.0 rebounds per game. He also shot 42.3 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from three-point range – a notable improvement from his freshman season.

The Blue Devils would like to see Proctor’s free-throw percentage go up after going down from 87.1 to 75.1. However, having a starting-caliber veteran guard in the backcourt will help Duke, especially when they get into conference play.

Along with Proctor, Duke will expect big things from Caleb Foster, who had a nice first season at Duke. The 6-foot-5 guard from Sherman Oaks, California, averaged 7.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 25.4 minutes per game. 

Foster also started in 15 out of 27 games as a freshman, which will help him heading into this second collegiate season. The No. 23 overall player from the 2023 recruiting class missed the NCAA tournament because of a stress fracture in his ankle, but he should be ready to go next season.
