Dukeblogger caught up with 2016 PF TJ Leaf who also happens to be the latest player offered by Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski
DukeBlogger: Thanks for the time TJ, what do you think is the strongest part of your game ?
TJ: My versatility and my ability to drive and knock down the 3 consistently.
DukeBlogger: Are there areas that you think need improvement in ?
TJ: I need to keep developing my wings skills and ball handling and getting stronger.
DukeBlogger: Clearly you have really strong perimeter skills for a big man, is that something you focused on to make you more versatile?
TJ: Yes I focus on perimeter skills a lot!
DukeBlogger: Have the coaches recruiting you given you any good advice on your development?
TJ: Not yet but they just say to keep building my perimeter skills and rebounding.
DukeBlogger: Were you surprised at the Duke offer?
TJ: Yes and no. I mean any time Duke offers it’s a big deal so I was excited but I expected it if I played good enough.
DukeBlogger: Thank you so much for your time man, good luck man, going to love watching you play be it at Duke or wherever man, keep it up.
