    great call

    The recent offer to Barnes shows (imo) that coach k might not offer wilson or vinson. 2010 should be a 5 or 6 man class though.

    My prediction:
    PG: Tyler Thornton
    SG: Dawkins
    SF: Harrison Barnes
    PF: Josh Hairston
    PF: Nate Lubick
    and maybe 1 more player
    so i heard duke just offered tyler thornton. great call dukefan.

    I'm Hoping that 1 more player is Mychal Parker who wouldn't like a 6'6 sf who could be at Duke for 4 years and if we do get Barnes. Parker can fill the gap immediatly after Barnes goes pro.

    well if he signs with duke, then i hope he's chances of being 1 and done are great because it would mean the had a great season. but i still hope he stays longer.

    Does this mean Duke won't offer Knight?

    It seems we are having the same conversation in two different threads.

    IMO, Duke will continue to recruit Brandon Knight.

    How good would Coach K look if Brandon Knight and Tyler Thornton both commited and Knight was awesome and left after one year and then Thornton turned into another Chris Duhon? He would look pretty freakin good.

    i hope nolan won't be here if we get knight and thornton. to crowded at the point.

    ^Nolan would get his playing time at the 2 and when Brandon Knight is out we can put him at the point. It would be a learning year for Thornton.

    Does anyone have more recent news on Harrison Barnes?

    I found a video of him on his Rivals page but nothing else.

    I've read that Harrison Barnes had a very active and productive summer, on the basketball travel circuit, including the Nike Global Challenge event in Oregon.

    There are some comments about his play in this article. Sounds good.

    Thank you that was just what I was looking for. This guy sounds great. That article also talks about Plumlee and Wilson although I guess it didn't have great things to say about them.

    Harrison Barnes Visit

    Is set for Oct. 24-25, same day as Duke v. VA Union game. Good to have him down for a game. Let's give him a big Cameron welcome that night!

    He hasn't even really met any of the coaches yet, so this is his first real meeting with K.

    This is an important visit. His skills would be unique on the team.

    Who is the assistant taking the lead on his recruitment?

    I'm not sure who is the main person in contact with Harrison, but I do know that he hasn't spoken with any of the coaches face-to-face yet, so it could be a great opportunity to make an impression on the young man.

    I wonder if it will be cheaper flying or driving from Iowa with the gas prices how they are? Either way he must have a strong interest to want to come from that distance.

    The blurb about Plumlee is disappointing, although I'm not surprised.

    6-10 finesse players are not what Duke needs; I hope Mason bulks up and works on his post moves and interior rebounding in traffic.

    Actually Duke can afford to have a finesse post player, at least for his freshman season. Look at the other post players on the team his first year, Kyle Singler is listed at 6'8 235 (same as Patrick Patterson btw) and will be a solid "4" man and could possibly gain another 5 lbs. Zoubek is huge but of course needs to improve his game which I think he will. I expect Olek to be quite good in 09-10 (sophomore season) and could add more muscle to his 240 lb. body. Right there you have three big players. Miles could also add alot of strength by his sophomore year and be up to 235/240+. LT will probably stay right around 220. So I honestly don't think we need a banger that year and Mason will be very good for the team as a finesse player. The next year, however, Duke will need a banger and that's where Josh Smith and Nate Lubick come in along with a finesse post player in Hairston.
