Miles Plumlee, a 2008 power forward, committed to Duke Thursday, just one week after he was granted a release from his Letter of Intent at Stanford before former Duke associate head coach Johnny Dawkins was hired. Plumlee is the older brother of 2009 Duke recruit, Mason Plumlee.
Miles will join combo guard Elliot Williams and power forward Olek Czyz in Duke’s Class of 2008, which had another scholarship open because of the transfer of Taylor King to Villanova.
As for our analysis of the commitment? Well, it’s always a positive when you can add a 4-star recruit in May, especially when your frontcourt could still use improvement.
