Coach Krzyzewski and his staff have been busy this week. On Monday the Blue Devils offered yet another five star big man with hopes of continuing their recruiting momentum which has produced back to back top ranked classes.

Five star 2017 center Mohamed Bamba has been one of the best young players in the country this Spring. On Monday afternoon he received an offer from Duke.

Rated as a five star prospect by Scout.com and the nation’s No. 3 center in the rising junior class, Bamba has offers from Arizona, Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, Villanova, and others.

Prior to Monday’s offer, the Blue Devils had been tracking Bamba and made themselves known to the 6-foot-11, 200 pound prospect, which allowed him to develop an initial impression of Coach K’s program.

“They are national champions, that’s all I really know and that they really develop their bigs really well.”

With the offer to Bamba, the Blue Devils now have nine offers out to underclassmen in the class of 2017. Those offers are to PF Wendell Carter, Jr., SF Michael Porter, Jr., WG Troy Brown Jr., WF D.J. Harvey, PF Austin Wiley, SG Gary Trent, Jr., and PG Trae Young
