Duke Recruiting: Kyle Filipowski Update

Nothing official here but somewhat encouraging nonetheless

We first became aware of Kyle Filipowski through a Syracuse site and then of course Duke got interested.

We should reiterate that this is a weird recruiting cycle and that a whole year of analysis and scouting was basically missed. So it’s entirely possible, and probably likely, that Filipowski would have been on Duke’s radar sooner than he was had it not been for Covid.

Whatever - he definitely is now and while this Syracuse site,, isn’t tossing in the towel, they seem close to resigned to Duke getting him instead of the ‘Cuse.

Of course that doesn’t mean much and the Crystal Ball trending Duke’s way is essentially sentiment and gossip, even if some of it is based on insider knowledge. The truth is, kids today have gotten a lot more careful about broadcasting their intentions and even if they weren’t, things can change suddenly and dramatically.

So we don’t know how much stock to put into this. We just know it’s kind of cool to see other fan bases think they’re losing ground to the Blue Devils. Take it for what it’s worth.
