It’s been a very good month or so in Duke Nation with the team getting to visit my backyard (Washington D.C.). The team got to meet with the President and also tour the Pentagon. They gifted President Obama with his own number 1 Duke jersey, hopefully he’ll be a Kyrie Irving fan. The President joked about trying to win some money with his brackets and also some of the comments that Coach K made about his predictions last year during the tourney. All in all it looked like a good time.
In other news Coach K has offered scholarships to 2012 prospects Alex Murphy and also Shabbaz Muhammad, both players have offers from top notch programs but seemed to be honored at the offer from Duke.
Losing Carrick Felix, although a blow to the Devil depth does open up a scholarship in 2011 that Duke will hope to be able to land an A-list big man or perhaps Austin Rivers. It puts the Devils in a good position for recruiting going forward with the departure of Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith after next year.
