Yeah. It’s a smart move if you have a lot of talent already. It’s impossible to coach and play with a rhythm with a team of 12 guys who all think they should be playing. It’s good to have a couple guys who work hard, are good teammates, but just happy to be there.
I think this is a lot of it. It's probably hard to sell a top 100 kid on being the 12th man on a program that regularly starts 4 freshman every year. And harder to manage him when he is not getting minutes.

Ideal practice body for Coach K.

If Coleman goes to Duke, it’ll be a similar situation to when they recruited and signed Vrankovic who was a 200+ recruit.

A couple of years ago I thought he was highly coveted. I just reread an article from 2016 including Delaire, Coleman, and Akok as players in New England that were going to have impact at the highest levels of D1. If we searched our old threads about him, I vaguely recollect comments to the effect he was going to be Juco bound, and had some issues off the court at least with the people around him. Seems like the academic part is cleaned up if there ever was truth to it, and I don't know the truth about the people he is associated with. I really wanted him then and from time to time have asked in threads why he wasn't being pursued. I've had him in mind as a plan A or plan B after Kofi & Wahab as the A choices, although I always thought he was as good as Wahab.

FYI my fav Zane Meeks committed to Nevada May 7th. I don't know if the lack of interest was his, ours, or both, but I predict he'll hit 6-7 3's in a game for Nevada with some frequency. 6'9 unranked sharpshooter with some bulk. I wish we had pursued him.
