    Seems like momentum is everything in recruiting, and now Coach Scheyer has some. Whitehead could turn that into an avalanche of momentum if things go our way there in the coming days. It's WAY too early to start thinking about who from this year's squad will be back in 2022, but there could be some great returning pieces to complement those two 5* freshmen.

    Good get.

    Now I think it's time to talk about the giant sundial in the room. How do you think his minutes will shake out??

    Also, this from the same article. Great to read these words.
    If you go back to the press conference, K specifically mentioned that he wouldn't be out recruiting basically at all this year, and it was going to allow him to focus 100% of his time and energy on coaching the team and getting them prepared to win a championship.

    I missed that. I like that idea!

    It was one of several things K said in that press conference that got me really hyped for this season. He is pretty clearly not planning on checking out early. Heck, wouldn't be shocked to see him get T'd up at some point! I'm expecting him to be pretty fired up.

    And, of course, welcome to Duke, Kyle!

    It ultimately came down to Duke and Marist. Iím very happy (and relieved) that he chose our Blue Devils. 😎

    Interesting that UVa and Tony Bennett didnít offer him. He seems to fit a bit of the Jay Huff mold to me.

    Surprising.

    Welcome to the brotherhood, Kyle.

    Call me old fashioned, but I like that his press release mentions the importance of academics and references graduating from Duke. Part of me obviously hopes he is a superstar his freshman year and leaves to be a lottery pick, but I also like that he seems to care about what is happening on both sides of Towerview Road.

    Welcome Kyle!

    Huge fan of this kid's game. He should continue to rise in the rankings, into the top 20-25 when it's all said and done. This is a reach, but his skillset reminds me a little of Christian Laettner. At worst, I think he's a more athletic Ryan Kelly.

    We got us a good one.

    Kyle presents a rare form of student-athlete where their high school tuition likely rivals that of Duke.

    Wilbraham & Monson Academyís annual tuition for students in grades 6-12 that board 7 days/week is $66,800 in the 2021-2022 school year!

    Same school that 2016 power forward Duke target Wenyen Gabriel attended before committing to Kentucky .
