Coach K Goes In Home With Sasha Tonight

After tripping to Peoria, IL to meet with the nation's top playmaker for four hours on Tuesday night, the Blue Devil coaching staff will conduct their second in-home of the week this afternoon at Florida Air Academy with Alexander Sasha Kaun.

Kaun, who has already made an official trip to Kansas, is looking forward to hosting the Devils according to his head coach Aubin Goporo. More specifically Kaun is looking forward to an in-depth Q&A session with Coach Krzyzewski and company,

"I think his main focus with the Duke visit will be to get an idea of where he stands in their plans," said Goporo. "He wants to know if he'll see a lot of time early on in his career or if he'll be developing and learning more during the first year."

However Kaun isn't just looking for the best basketball program; he's also very interested in the academic situation at each of his three finalists, which will likely lead to a number of questions regarding Duke's various undergraduate programs as well as the diversity on campus.

"I want to major in computer science," says Kaun. "I also want the chance to surround myself with a good atmosphere. That's something I will ask them about when I have a chance to talk to them on Thursday."

With his official to Kansas already in the books, the 6-foot-11, 240 pound big man will be making the trip to Lansing, MI this weekend for an official visit with Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans. He will visit Duke on the weekend of September 27th before returning home and "immediately announcing" his decision.
