Last Sunday, Kahlil Dukes became the first commit for USC and head coach Kevin O’Neill from the class of 2013.
A native of Hartford, Connecticut, Dukes stands at 5-foot-11, leading the way for Capital Prep (CT) during the season. A true scoring machine, Dukes continues to rise in terms of his on-the-court ability.
In fact, just prior to last weekend’s decision, Dukes showcased his scoring talents, putting up back-to-back 40+ point performances as part of the Adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas.
While the Trojans may very well end up getting one of the more underrated steals from the class of 2013, they are also getting an individual who has an additional talent, off the court.
Introducing The Hidden Talent of Kahlil Dukes: a Tumblr blog, operated by the man himself.
Throughout the blog, which is updated periodically, Dukes goes into details on a number of different things. From his play to his recruitment to his goals and aspirations, Dukes’ latest update talked about his weekend his Las Vegas and his verbal decision in favor of USC.
If taking the time and effort to blog isn’t impressive enough for the busy, USC-bound prospect, check out his work because …hey, Dukes is a pretty good writer.
Dukes’ blog has a specific slogan on the right hand side, and it puts the overall point of things into perspective. It reads: “Everyone knows I play ball, but not everyone knows I can write.”
Dukes will join the USC program prior to the start of the 2013-14 season.
