Chansky On Duke’s Recruiting Dominance

On some level, this had to hurt.

Art Chansky’s latest column talks about Duke and Kentucky and one-and-done players with Chansky arguing that Duke has passed UK and everyone else in this regard and that Duke is like Larry Bird entering the locker room before the three point shooting contest one year and asking “who’s playing for second?”

Not that it matters much since the one-and-done era will be ending in a year or two.

Although Chansky has had to let up on the anti-Duke stuff a bit since Duke became a nationally dominant program, he still worked this in: “Now Kentucky has lost a five-star recruit, 6-foot-7 D. J. Jeffries, who de-committed from the Wildcats and leaves Calipari with only one signee from the class of 2019. That means Jeffries is on his way to play for Memphis, where first-year coach Penny Hardaway was Jeffries’ AAU coach this summer. Sounds like Coach K and USA Basketball.”

Uh...just to be clear on this, the guys Coach K coached weren’t eligible to be recruited since they were already professionals.
