COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Luke Kennard, the 27th annual winner of Ohio's AP Mr. Basketball award, has announced he'll play college ball at Duke.
The 6-foot-6 junior averaged 41 points, 10.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2 steals per game in the regular season for Franklin High School. His final five college choices - he said at the time "in no particular order" - were Duke, Ohio State, Kentucky, North Carolina and Michigan.
Kennard, also an all-state quarterback in football, said last week that he was looking forward to announcing his choice so he could "enjoy my next year and kind of get the pressure off."
He is also has a grade-point average of 4.3 and is among the top students in his school.
