My Version of Coach K’s Recruiting Success Map

By July 14, 20152 Comments

I tried to create a map outlying the areas of greatest success in Coach K’s tenure at Duke. It should be mostly accurate going back to 82, it’s not scientific and I may have missed one or two. I went by the location of the high school. Twas a judgement call, my map, my rules. One case that was particularly hard was the Plumlees – from Indiana and Mason went to high school there before transferring to a NC school. I counted him as a NC recruit. Feel free to let me know any errors you may see or ask questions about a particular recruit as I still have my data.

    Very cool post, thanks. Do you have any data on offers? I’d be interested in seeing rates of return on recruiting visualized.

  • It would probably be only possible to do more recent recruits in terms of offers, not sure I could go very far back to find offers. Not sure those are recorded anywhere but would be interesting.
