What are your thoughts on being a Duke Blue Devil?
It’s been a long journey, a long road with many ups and downs but Coach K and Nate James saw me and liked me and now I get the opportunity to be a Duke Basketball player and a part of their family. I honestly worked for it. I really worked for it, I worked real hard for it. I’m excited and glad they’re giving me the opportunity.”
Tell me about the first time you met Coach K.
Well, it was Coach K so everybody is going to be kind of nervous and I was and didn’t know what to say. But he’s kind of like another person in my family. I felt like I could talk to him about anything from the start. We just clicked like we knew each other for years and I felt very, very comfortable around him and he did around me, so we really clicked.
I understand, Coach James played a big role in your recruitment. Can you talk a little bit about that?
(laughs) What happened is he came up here to see the seven footer Aziz Nidiaye. I actually met Coach Nate James a little before that in my coaches office. Coach James walks by me and I didn’t know who he was at first
