Cassius Stanley is a top 30 prospect from Los Angeles, California, who recently committed to Duke, Stanley chose Duke over UCLA, Kansas and Oregon. Stanley is ranked as the 3rd best prospect from California and 29th overall in the class of 2019.
While Stanley is only ranked as a 4-star recruit his athleticism and potential has always drawn attention. Standing at 6’5, 190 with elite leaping ability Stanley projects to be an elite perimeter defender, if he can knock down his jump shot consistently he can be one of the best players in the country.
Stanley’s first viral video happened when he was just 14-years old; the video showed Stanley throwing down dunks most NBA players would struggle to finish. The dunks included a Vince Carter in between the legs slam and an around the back dunk off an alley-oop pass to himself.
Stanley consistently backed up the hype with his play on the court, this past season playing for Sierra Canyon High School he averaged 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game.
If Stanley can bring this kind of production and excitement to Duke in his freshman year he’ll become a household name quickly.
