Duke To Visit International Pair


Word surfaced on Tuesday afternoon that Coach K would be paying a visit to Montverde Academy down in Florida.  The prep powerhouse is home to two Duke targets: Ben Simmons and Chris Egi.

 

Sources close to the Chris Egi sweepstakes tell HHC Duke’s Coach K will travel this week to Florida & visit the #CdnBallers

 

Egi is a multi-year center that recently reclassified from the 2015 class to the 2014 class.  He is quoted as saying Duke is his dream school, however, he reportedly cut Duke from his list a few weeks ago.  Keep an eye out on this recruitment as Duke sorely needs post depth beyond the 2014-2015 season and Egi could be a perfect match.

Simmons, on the other hand, is a prime Duke target for the 2015 class.  The Aussie is a 6-9 forward that could realistically play either in the post or on the wing.  The lefty shooter has an excellent ceiling that shines off of his athleticism and, combined with his shooting touch, makes him one of the top prospects in the world.  Simmons is a likely one and done, lottery pick.
