    Awesome. Thanks for that. Will be great to have another good shooter at Duke.

    Aside from the Plumlee brothers (or any other set of siblings), has Duke ever had two players on the same roster who were also multi-year high school teammates?

    I went back a few years and saw that Matt Jones and Marques Bolden both went to DeSoto, but they were three years apart so they overlapped for one year of college and presumably one year of high school.

    Similarly, Grant Hill and Joey Beard went to the same high school and were also three years apart so if they overlapped in HS, it would have only been for one year. I think that's the closest it gets (excluding brothers like the Caldbecks) unless there is a pair from way back.

    Those were the days, when Vermont guys ruled Duke's roster...

    Haven't come up with any to meet that criteria; Danny Ferry and Kenny Blakeney were both DeMatha guys not too far apart, but did not overlap.

    dunno if this has been posted, but some good info on Keels' game and some advice K gave him:https://www.espn.com/mens-college-ba...mit-2021-class

    Welcome Trevor! Jersey #2 and a room at the WaDuke just opened yesterday! Stay a while!

    As someone said somewhere, the best thing about freshmen is they become sophomores...except that happens less and less at Duke these days!

    Y. Need one more guard. Right now really just roach at pg and keels at sg. Other “guard types” Joey baker and Wendell Moore but really need another distributor as they are larger guards

    With our outstanding front line we are going to see a lot of zones next year
    A zone buster shooter or two would be nice to have in the toolbox for such occasions...

    This statement jumped out to me:

    “He is best at putting pressure on a defense with his consistent jumper.”

    If Keels can consistently knock down 3 PT FG, he will be a big asset.

    Obviously we desperately needed him (or a high quality transfer) for next years roster. But, as you implied, he’s a big “if” as a Freshman major asset. Joey Baker, HS recruiting ranked in low 30’s, also came with shooting prowess and maybe Baker is a strong comp.

    Think in prior decades we’d be exited to see him progress as a Sophomore, Junior, etc. but that likelihood has narrowed. The star from afar is always brighter.

    turnert (he who knows what he's talking about) says K first saw Keels in late 2019 and fell in love with his game...and he gave him the advice (evidently followed) to lose weight to improve his game.

    Really glad Trevor picked Duke because the loss of DJ really put a big ? mark on our backcourt for next season. The options before the commitment were: Roach, Wendell and Joey. I don't think we would have seen AJ or Paulo in the backcourt much next season. I still believe we need one more guard and I also believe Coach K will get one. I wouldn't be surprised if he has been working on that for a while now. Maybe Ty Ty Washington would be a good get. He has point guard skills which would take some of the pressure off Roach. I'm not saying he would get major minutes, but he could be there when/if we have foul trouble. Roach did tend to get into foul difficulty at times this season..

    GoDuke!
