One of the interesting ironies of following Duke recruiting is that you can keep up with a lot of it through Kentucky sites.

First, the two schools tend to recruit a lot of the same players and second, Kentucky people follow Duke (and Duke recruiting much more closely than Duke people follow Kentucky.

So we saw this article in we were intrigued.

The basic idea is that a bunch of potential Duke recruits, led by Joey Baker, have started a group text and it could help Duke build another great recruiting class.

You’ve probably heard of most of the recruits by now - Baker, Brian Antoine, Isaiah Stewart and Joe Girard among them - and you have may heard of the group too.

What impresses us is that it’s being written about in the Lexington newspaper. We’re glad that it is, don’t misunderstand. But there’s an undertone of how dare Duke compete with Kentucky (again)?
