On the Ryan Kelly Article that DBR linked on the front page (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/recruiting/basketball/mens/notebook?page=hallpass/081029), there is a sidebar that talks about Mason Plumlee.

At the bottom of the sidebar, there's a little nugget on Miles: "Coincidently, his older brother Miles, another big man who has the ability to stretch defenses through his outside shooting touch, will redshirt this upcoming season at Duke and make his debut in 2009 as well. "

Is this true? I thought Miles was going to get some decent minutes this year?

He is not redshirting.

For the record. Miles Plumlee is not going to be redshirted this year and there was never a snowball's chance in Hades that he would be.

The author may have been confusing Plumlee with Olek Czyz. Redshirting Czyz was a possibility but I do expect that to happen either.

The article was poorly researched.
