Marvin Bagley III made his college choice Monday night, and he completely changed the 2017-18 college basketball season in the process.

The Nike Phamily (CA) star chose Duke over USC and UCLA, and will reclassify to the 2017 class, becoming eligible immediately.

Bagley joins six other EYBL alumni in Duke's 2017 class, including Gary Trent Jr (Howard Pulley), Wendell Carter (Team CP3), Alex O'Connell (Team United) and Jordan Tucker (NY RENS), Trevon Duval (Playaz Club) and Jordan Goldwire (Team United). 

Bagley earned First Team All-EYBL & First Team All-Peach Jam Honors during the 2017 EYBL season, and is widely regarded as the top prospect not currently in the NBA.

Duke now has seven players committed in the 2017 class, all of them being EYBL alumni; Bagley, Gary Trent Jr (Howard Pulley), Wendell Carter (CP3/GA Stars), Jordan Tucker (NY RENS), Alex O'Connell (Team United), Jordan Goldwire (Team United) and Trevon Duval (Playaz Club).

Below are the EYBL statistics for each Duke commit. Duke's 2017 class combined to average 108.8 PPG, 43.5 RPG, 14.2 APG, 7.9 SPG & 6.5 BPG in the #EYBL
