Boykin Ready To Host K

After meeting top prospect Jon Brockman in Snomish, Wash last night, head coach Mike Krzyzewski completes his west coast swing this evening in Los Angeles when he'll meet with committed power forward Jamal Boykin.

"I'm looking forward to meeting with him," said 6-foot-7 225 pound Jamal Boykin of tonight's visit. "I've never had a chance to talk to him face to face, just on the phone and waiving at tournaments."

Since committing to the Blue Devils Boykin has raised his level of intensity in his off the court workouts in order to prepare himself not only for the rigors of the his senior year, but also for his inagural trip to the ACC.

"I used to dream about playing for Duke when I was working out and being a Duke player. Now I have to change that a little. Now I want to be a contributor at Duke, which means I have to work even harder."

After the meeting tonight Boykin will head to Duke for his official visit on the weekend of September 23rd. In the meantime he's working hard to help the Blue Devils finish off the class of 2005.

"I know they want to get Jon Brockman to round it out, and if there's anything I can do to help there, I'll certainly do it."
