Former four-star guard Brandon Weston committed to Archie Miller and Rhode Island on Wednesday night, after he missed most of his freshman year at Seton Hall due to injury.

Duke’s Joey Baker decided to enter the portal on Wednesday after spending four years in Durham. Baker’s entry came on the same day that transfer wing AJ Green visited Duke, which means Green could come in as his replacement. Baker, a 6-foot-6 wing, is a career 38% three-point shooter.
