Now comes Bagley, who announced Monday night that he had completed his high school degree a year early so he could reclassify into the 2017 recruiting class.
If the NCAA approves him to play college basketball this season, he’ll slide right into a Duke lineup that already includes three incoming freshmen who were rated as the No.
“They have a physical maturity that we think is ready for college basketball right now,” Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel said earlier this month.
Take those four freshman and add senior guard Grayson Allen, who helped Duke win a national championship in 2015, then averaged 21 points per game and was named an All-American the following year.
That trip was canceled on Thursday, a week before the team was to depart, after the school announced that Krzyzewski needed surgery to replace his right knee.
