Kevon Looney, the 6’9″ forward on everyone’s Top 10 list for the Class of 2014, was part of a super team this weekend at the Adidas Nations camp in Long Beach, CA, where he joined fellow Duke recruits Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow to dominate the tournament.  For those of you who have not seen Looney play, he is a unique talent.  He is long, very athletic, and plays above the rim.  He can shoot it and takes it strong to the hole.  Defensively, he has excellent instincts, blocking shots you think he has no chance to get to.  But the quality that really stands out for me is his motor.  The kid is just relentless, as he pounds the boards at both ends with passion.  He is unselfish as well, and fits in beautifully with the team concept, despite the fact that, if he wanted to, he could take over pretty much any game he plays in.  I have a hard time coming up with a similar Duke player in the Coach K era.  He would be a terrific get for the Blue Devils.

Kevon is down to six schools, and he updates BDN on his summer, his plans going forward, and where he is in the recruiting process.
