Dukeblogger: You’ve been to CTC (Countdown to Craziness) previously right?
Tre Jones: Yes.
Dukeblogger: Do you think it will be a completely different vibe going as a recruit?
Tre Jones: I think it will be different going as a recruit with them being more focused on me now.
Dukeblogger: Did you end up learning about the staff when Tyus (Tyus Jones) was being recruited or was it more of a process of looking at Duke with fresh eyes?
Tre Jones: I learned a lot about the coaching staff as Tyus went through the process.
