Full Details on Duke’s offer to Tyler Adams

Although many NCAA basketball teams are currently focused on the postseason this does not mean head coaches can stop recruiting.  For the Duke Blue Devils, the world of recruiting actually remains quite busy despite the fact they are a top seeded NCAA Tournament team.  As such, Blue Devil Insider has learned that Duke Coaches extended a scholarship offer to Tyler Adams yesterday morning.  Adams is a 6’9” 260lb center from the class of 2011.  A few weeks ago, Duke assistant coach Nate James traveled to Mississippi to evaluate the fast rising prospect in person.  The visit went well and the Blue Devil staff is said to be impressed with Adams’ personal demeanor as well as his basketball skills.  The Duke coaching staff is high on Adams’ strong character as they believe Tyler possesses good work ethic, humbleness, and a strong family upbringing.  Overall, Coach K and company feel that Adams would fit in quite well with the Duke program.

    Is there anymore information to this

  3. I am going to look into the Parker offers.

  4. BDI Update – Officially, the scholarship offer to Parker is to play football at Duke with an invitation to play basketball as well. Given Parker’s skill set he should be more than qualified to make the basketball team as a “walk on”. Duke will not offer Parker a scholarship for each sport, but the Blue Devils do have a genuine interest in having Parker play both sports at the school and will support Parker if this is his choice.
