Real life occasionally makes demands and so we didn’t have time to talk about the McDonald’s roster until this morning Duke recruits Dereck Lively, Dariq Whitehead and Mark Mitchell were all named to the squad.

Where’s Kyle Filipowski?

As a fifth-year player, he’s not eliigible. Jaden Schutt was not picked, nor was Christian Reeves. Both of them are being re-evaluated. Schutt probably wasn’t too far away but Reeves was never a serious candidate.

However, his re-evalutation is underway and people now see a player they didn’t see earlier. In fact, some are calling him “a steal.”

Reeves will redshirt next season and start playing the year after. At that point he could be really something.
