After Duke received the paperwork to make Miles Plumlee’s signing official, head coach Mike Krzyzewski issued his first public comments about the 6-foot-10 forward and brother of 2009 signee Mason Plumlee.
“We are fortunate to land a player of Miles’ caliber this late in the recruiting process,” Krzyzewski said. “He is a versatile player that continues to grow and mature physically. Miles gives us another skilled big man that can be an impact player on both ends of the floor.”
Sounds awfully similar to what we said on May 2 after Plumlee first signed: “It’s always a positive when you can add a 4-star recruit in May, especially when your frontcourt could still use improvement.” Perhaps we have a reader in Duke’s most famous coach?
