With Kyle Filipowski Duke-bound, we were wondering Monday where his twin brother Matthew was headed.

As it turns out, we didn’t have to wait long: he announced his commitment to Harvard later Monday.

Although Kyle is generally seen as a more versatile player, Matthew is developing a solid big-man game and building a reputation as a shot blocker, something Harvard has not seen a lot of.

Of course Harvard is coached by former Blue Devil and Mike Krzyzewski assistant Tommy Amaker who has completely shaken up Ivy League basketball. His ability to recruit academically gifted athletes has made Harvard competitive with most schools in the country. Filipowski joins Chandler Piggé and Chisom Okpara in Amaker’s 2022 class for the Crimson.

Clearly Kyle is ahead of Matthew at this point but it’s not like one guy has more talent than the other. It won't surprise us in the slightest if Matthew develops rapidly at Harvard and for fans, it’s going to be fun to see how the brothers improve in college.
