Princeton landed a major commitment for their 2023 recruiting class. Ryan Duncan, a 6’3” guard of Wilbraham & Monson Academy, announced his commitment on Tuesday to the Tigers and head coach Mitch Henderson. Before his post graduate year at the Massachusetts prep school, Duncan graduated from Chicago U-High and played with Fundamental U. 

Duncan picked Princeton over his other offers from Loyola Maryland and Radford as well he had interest from a number of other programs. The commitment comes after Duncan took a visit to Princeton back in November and stated that he “really enjoyed” his trip to the Ivy League school. “It was great spending time with the players and coaching staff seeing the campus. Definitely going to get back there to see some games this season.” 

There were several factors of the basketball program that came into Duncan’s decision to choose Princeton. “A big part of what drew me to Princeton was my relationship with the coaching staff. Coach Mitch Henderson was actually the first division one coach I ever talked to. They have a winning history and a great team culture, and I definitely think it’s a place where I can continue to grow, learn, and keep getting better,” Duncan said. 

“I just want to win,” Duncan said about his future fitting in at Princeton. “Whatever that team needs and whatever role I need to fill, that’s what my goal is. I love Princeton’s system and thing my game will translate really well.” Princeton is building a strong future backcourt from its 2023 recruitment class as it also has a commitment from point guard Dalen Davis of Whitney Young High School.
