    Word just now out that Roy offered Matthew Hurt today.

    Edit: don't see anywhere coach K has offered him yet.

    Mike Krzyzewski was in to see five-star 2019 prospect Matthew Hurt today, per his father. Bill Self & Roy Williams are expected next week.

    There's an Abbott and Costello routine somewhere in there with this kid's name.

    If he comes to Duke, his middle name might well be changed to "Undisclosed".

    I suppose that it "has to be" the Chief's son. Tells you a lot about Sr's personality that he would continue the naming tradition that his "hippie" parents started with him.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a legacy or two pop up on Duke's roster, but I'm really hoping to see Shelden's and Candace's sons!
    I hate to be the one to break it to you, but they divorced awhile back. They did have 1 daughter, though.

    Maybe he is related to the man who designed the flooring surfaces in Cameron, the renowned R. Feete Hurt.

    Might actually be related to Duke's very own 1961 captain, Howard Hurt.

    Someone with better search skills can check.

    Well, Howard Hurt is not his father. According to his brother's basketball bio at Minnesota (where he just finished his freshman year), his Dad's name is Richard Hurt, Jr.

    Maybe Howard changed his name? Actually, one can learn about our Howard Hurt here.

    If Howard Hurt was a captain in 1961, he would obviously not be the kid's father. He would be in his late 70s today, and in his 60s when Matthew Hurt was born. There is a a generation in between. Of course, if Matthew Hurt's dad is a Jr. and not named Howard, then Howard is not the grandfather either. Could be related still, but perhaps not a direct lineage.

    If Matthew comes to Duke, he'll be able to have whatever locker he chooses.

    Hugh Hefner had kids in his mid-60s!

    Want to take a guess as to what percentage of men father children in their 60s? I am guessing it was less than 1% back in the early 2000s. And among those who fathered children past the age of 60, I am guessing it is likely limited primarily to the extremely wealthy (you have to have a female partner who is pre-menopausal). I feel quite confident in saying that Matthew Hurt's father is not in his 70s.

    Roughly the same likelihood as having a kid good enough to play college basketball at the ultra-elite level?

    Mick Jagger just had a kid last year!

    (You know I don't actually believe his dad is in his 70s, right? I am enjoying poking the bear a little bit though.)

    Having children very late in life is how President John Tyler (who took office in 1841) still has two living grandchildren.

    Anyway, enough about that. We are talking about a different kind of Dick Hurt here.
