Top 25 players in college basketball: Beware of Duke

OK, we'll take the suspense out: Marvin Bagley is the new No. 1. But he isn't the only Blue Devil on the list. In fact, he's not even the only Blue Devil in the top two. Fear not, there are plenty of other non-Duke related surprises in our latest list.

How Marvin Bagley shook up the college hoops Way-Too-Early Top 25

You knew this was coming the moment top recruit Marvin Bagley picked Duke, right? The Blue Devils have vaulted ahead of Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas and ex-No. 1 Arizona. But actually, the decision to make Duke No. 1 was harder than you might think.

My Marvin Bagley III player comparisons at the same stage. More offensive minded but less of a defensive presence than Anthony Davis. Displays the same scoring punch as Chris Bosh but a better rebounder. Go back to the 80's and think of a more talented Sam Perkins. With all that said Bagley has a lot of work to do but he has so much to work with.

Will Duke's talent deliver when it counts?

In the last four years, the team with the nation's top-ranked recruiting class has prevailed as champion just once in the NCAA tournament. On the bright side for the Blue Devils, that was their 2014-15 team, which beat Wisconsin to prevail in the final.

Just another notch in Duke's belt

The Blue Devils are no strangers to landing the country's top-ranked player, as the only team to do so three times since ESPN 100 began in 2007. Only one other school (Kentucky, twice) has done so more than once. Duke has pulled in its fair share of other top prospects as well.
