Yea ive heard that if Duke were to offer it would be over...he plays for a much smaller AAU team as you know so hopefully he either commits prior to AAU ball or early on before many get a chance to see him.
I made that point yesterday. It should be seen as a feather in UT’s cap that a HOF coach spurned a blue blood to stay here because he believes it’s a better job. Whether it’s true or not, all he has to do is sell recruits on the idea that he believes it is.
By the way things look, all that matters in recruiting the elite is how much you're willing to pay their AAU coaches/family. So I'm glad Barnes can win with 3 star guys. That's probably his #1 selling point right now.
