It would help if we didn’t unnecessarily lose two key players since then - and generally suck this year. At this point, we’re banking on Frank’s relationship with these players. And that’s not enough when you’re competing with the best programs in history.

Fine by me not all 5 stars work out on superstar freshman teams see this year's Kentucky team and Harry Giles. Tater basketball stays off the map. They will make the tourney but don't have the inside game to make a deep run. Now let's get after Simons, Montgomery and those 2019 boys

Good question, not sure. Instate football talent has not been strong for a few years now, so we haven't had any high profile recruits from the state for a while

But, I'm surprised more recruits don't want to make a legacy somewhere of their own. Zion will be forgotten at Duke 5 minutes after his last game as the fans turn their attention to the next batch of incoming 5* recruits. Whereas, if he had come here or Clemson, he'd be a legend in the state forever. He'd be beloved by the fan base forever.

He chose Duke because he’s always wanted to do research on triangles.

With the top 3 players from the class committed, Duke pretty much HAS to win the title next year. Anything less would be a colossal failure.

Duke in basketball is like if Vanderbilt’s football team had Bama’s trophy case. Not hard to sell a great education and a great HOF coach to a recruit’s family
