Hurt made big strides from his freshman to sophomore seasons, upping his scoring average from 9.7 to 18.3. As a result, he was named to the 2020-21 All-ACC first team.
The 6-foot-9 Hurt also demonstrated strong shooting ability while nailing 44.4% of his 3-point attempts last season. Multiple outlets peg him as a second-round pick due to his combination of size and scoring.
Meanwhile, Duke loses its leading scorer heading into the 2021-22 campaign. However, the Blue Devils are retooling fast, with three players ranked in the top 20 of ESPN's recruiting rankings signed to play in Durham next season.
