    So, Scheyer is going to be the first coach to start five 6-8 forwards.

    And we may have both J.J. and G.G. in the lineup. If so we'd probably need to select some BB King music to play as the team comes out of the tunnel, and we'd have to appoint ee cummings as the team poet . . . .

    Hey, as long as they can fit together on the court and can play championship caliber basketball, that is all that matters.

    He must have liked those 2008-2009 line-ups with he, Lance, Kyle, GHendo and McClure.

    I thought that was basically what the late 80s Illinois flyin' Illini were but I just checked and most of them were under 6-8.

    Duke has offered PG Caleb Foster (Oak Hill).

    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    Another indication that Duke thinks Jeremy will be around 3/4 years: the first 5* PG offered by Scheyer is in the class of 2023, not 2022.

    Worth noting that Foster grew up in North Carolina and is supposedly a huge Duke fan. He loves Kyrie and the Jones brothers. Not saying this will be an easy recruiting situation, but we should have a bit of a leg up on this kid.

    Also, he plays at Oak Hill, which is where Nolan, Quinn, and Will Avery all played in high school.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    It's interesting to see Duke go back to the well for some of the first recruits of the Jon Scheyer era. His first PG offer is from Oak Hill Academy and grew up in North Carolina? It's like he was made for Duke.

    The 2023 class has 3 guys from NJ, 2 guys from NC, 1 from Montverde and another from Chicago in the top 10.

    Expecting Coach Scheyer to help us reel in a monster class..

    Top PG prospect Caleb Foster of Oak Hill Academy released his Top 8, and Duke makes the cut. There has been buzz on the interwebs that Foster is looking at Duke, so it was no surprise to see the Blue Devils there.

    Foster also lists Auburn, Charlotte, Clemson, Louisville, Stanford, Virginia, and Wake Forest. You don't see Charlotte in that kind of list very often.

    Maybe Iím reading into things too much, but of the remaining school logos, it seems only Stanfordís would fit into the stone outline behind him in the image. Letís hope not a foreshadowing.

    Looks like the #8. Maybe for the 8 schools on his list?

    Seems like a lot of offers by Duke already for the Class of 2023, where players are about to start their junior year in high school. (Michael Jordan at this point had not yet made his varsity team).

    Is this a change in strategy by new Coach Scheyer to line up his 2023 recruiting class early? Or more just the nature of the current recruiting atmosphere? Is he going about this differently than Coach K did?

    I've done a little digging and there is conflicting information out there about JJ Taylor. Some say he has received an offer while others say he has not. If you look at the offers page on 247Sports, for example, it's Caleb Foster, GG Jackson, Mackenzie Mgbako, and JJ Taylor.

    That seems about normal for players entering their junior year of high school. Tyus Jones, for example, received an offer from Coach K and Duke in February 2012, at the end of his sophomore year of high school. My recollection of these things pre-COVID is that the team narrows its focus on a few key players during the summer before their junior year of high school and then offers a few more during the summer of their senior year. Given that recruiting for the Class of 2022 is in full swing, I doubt we'll see more offers for 6+ months.
