The Blue Devil family got a little bit bigger on Friday. The DBR Podcast crew starts out by welcoming 6-8 combo forward Mark Mitchell, the latest 5-star stud who wants to be a part of Jon Scheyer’s first year as head coach. Mitchell’s commitment cements Scheyer’s first recruiting effort as the best class in the land.

We discuss what Mitchell brings to the program and what kind of role he will play on next year’s Blue Devils.

And, after the break, we also welcome new football head coach Mike Elko to Durham. Elko joins Duke after a very impressive run as defensive coordinator at Texas A&M, Notre Dame, and Wake Forest. We are super excited to see how he will craft the future of the Blue Devil football program.

And, as a bonus, we get to learn a little bit about the football games Donald Wine used to attend when he was growing up.
