Duke Recruiting: Syracuse Hearing Footsteps?

No matter what happens, it’s fun to watch an opposing fan base squirm

You know what’s fun? Watching the ACC pecking order cause anxiety.

Back when Syracuse joined the ACC, there was a brief uncertainty, like maybe things would change.

Well as it turned out, not really. Duke, UNC and lately Virginia and Florida State have been the dominant teams in the conference and Duke, in particular, has recruited like Arnold Schwarzenegger carrying a 75 lb. weapon.

So when a Syracuse site gets worried that Duke might move in on a key recruit, well, first, who knows? Time will tell

But second? It’s undeniably fun to see them squirm even before Duke has offered.

We don’t know much about Kyle Filipowski yet but he’s from New England and unless we’re very much mistaken, UConn’s Danny Hurley is going to do his dead level best to lock down New England.
