One of the hottest players in the class of 2015 is 6-5 shooting guard Charles Mathews and his play during the recent Nike Peach Jam did nothing to cool him off. In fact, it was clear that Duke and Mike Kryzyzewski had started to recruit Matthews as he stood side by side with John Calipari to take in his game. Kentucky offered Matthews in June ans since that time he’s on his way to becoming a household name. Matthews can swing to the point guard spot as well with his skill set and his active presence on the court is hard not to notice. Matthews claims there are no early leaders and that he would not make a decision until his senior season. Blue Devil Nation caught up to Matthews to get his thoughts on Coach K and the recruiting process to date.
