    Duke doesn't recruit over players already in the fold.

    That kid is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    And sometimes just as explosive!
    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    Football is the world's religion. And btw, Duke-Carolina is not the most passionate rivalry in the world.

    I heard a commentator say today, "looking at that picture of the kid, I think there is a little bit of Danny Almonte in him."

    Expectations

    Let's not put unreasonable expectations on the kid just because his dad is a famous player and coach...
    Oh, wait a minute.

    I think this kid was Reese Woodbury- son of Mike Woodbury - a HS coach who got in a lot of trouble for verbally abusing his players- caught on tape. If I would guess, given that Reese does not show up in any searches- he probably peaked at 5.

    I found a mention of a 6th grader in Dec of 2017 named Reese Woodbury (which should be the right age of a kid who was 5 in 2011) who played for the varsity basketball team at The Pine School in Florida. A 6th grader playing Varsity would somewhat match the track of this "phenom."

    But, I checked the website and there is no Reese Woodbury currently on the Pine School basketball team. So, he must have gone elsewhere. If anyone else wants to do some digging, go for it. He would be just an 8th grader at this point, so not yet even in high school.

    Naassir Cunningham Schedules a Trip to Durham

    One of the top players in the Class of 2024, 6'7" G Naasir Cunningham, will take a visit to Duke this upcoming weekend. Cunningham displayed his mix of quickness, vertical ability, and shooting touch at the Hoophall Classic on Sunday night. He led the Gill St. Bernard (NJ) squad with 24 points on 5-6 shooting from 3 to go along with a few eye-popping dunks. He gets above the rim quickly, in a similar fashion to Cassius Stanley. He's a smooth and blazingly fast athlete with great shooting mechanics. His HS team includes another Duke target, Class of 2023 F Mackenzie Mgbako. He plays for the NY Renaissance AAU team with Class of 2022 commit Kyle Filipowski and coach Andy Borman. Suffice it say, this kid has a number of Duke connections.

    Cunningham will be on campus with another top Class of 2023 target, GG Jackson.

    Here's a highlight video of Cunningham from Sunday night. Mgbako finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for the GSB team. Dereck Lively, after a big performance earlier in the weekend, was quiet in this matchup.

    Some quick internet sleuthing. His name is Reese Woodbury, and based on his instagram he is now focusing on golf. There are also some pictures of him when younger playing basketball with older players.

    To be a little more specific, Cunningham is THE #1 player in ESPN's Top 25 for 2024. He looked like far and away the best player in the highlight reel from that game (including Mgbako).

    Not sure why this is in the 2024 thread. Bronny is class of 2023 while the Boozer boys (Cameron Boozer is said to be the better of the two) are in class of 2025.

    Wait... you just split the difference**. Ahhhh, well that makes sense

    As for which I would rather see at Duke... while Bronny carries a "cool" factor that is hard to resist, I think winning matters more than anything else and, based on early reports, it looks like the Boozer twins, especially Cameron, will be better prospects.

    That said, because he is 2 years ahead, Bronny is more of a known commodity. Who knows if the Boozers will even be top 100 recruits in 3+ years.

    I'll take all three of them, please.
