Another daily chat about about Duke, this time finishing off the recruiting for the class of 2010, yesterday I decided whether or not Mike Krzyzewski still had his recruiting spark, and I just wanted to say, yes, he does indeed!
Small Foward Large Talks: Harrison Barnes is one of the most talented players in the 2010 class, he has yet to committ to a school but Duke is number one on his list. The six foot six inch Iowa native has already been offered a Duke scholarship, he has yet to respond. Not only is he a huge threat down low with his athletic ability, but much like the Duke offense, Barnes is a big threat on the perimeter! On the defensive end he is outstanding, his speed makes him able to guard point guards, he can guard the shooting guards, and of course he can guard the small fowards, but he can also defend big men quite well. A lankier five star prospect, Roscoe Smith, he's 6'8, and mostly plays on the post, Duke has also offered him a scholarship, yet to respond. Its not even close to next years signing period, but Duke does not have any committs.
I feel next year that the strongest point of Duke's recruiting may be the small foward position.
