The Duke Blue Devils got some great recruiting news recently when small forward Justise Winslow committed this afternoon. This resulted in Blue Devil nation rejoicing on twitter, which was to be expected to be sure.
More and more have been seeing Jeff Capel get props on twitter for all the recruiting work he has put in, so just wanted to throw him a little bit of credit.
Time for Jeff Capel to get another head coaching gig. Point man on Jabari Parker, Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones, Justise Winslow & Rodney Hood.

The whole staff is ecstatic and released a statement recently that expressed that sentiment.
“We’re ecstatic about the four young men that are coming to Duke,” head coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a press release. “We consider Jahlil Okafor as good a big man as there is in the country, but not just a big man. In Tyus Jones, I think we have the best point guard in the country. Someone who has won state championships, USA championships and is the consummate leader on the court. Justise Winslow is a great wing player.”
Boy, these guys are going to be fun to watch and you have to wonder if they will be as hyped or even more than this year’s Lexington squad.
In any case be sure to check back in with us tomorrow and thanks for reading.
