Two '09 Big Men Take In SJU Game

One of the four prospects with a Blue Devil offer in the class of 2009 appears to favor Duke; while another big time interior prospect took in his first visit to Durham.

Christ School captured the North Carolina Private School's 3-A state title, it's second in as many years. Christ School defeated Greensboro Day 50-41 as Lakeem Jackson scored 12 points. Jackson and both Mason and Miles Plumlee were named all-state.

Miles Plumlee, a Stanford signee, played the state playoffs after having surgery on his finger. Brother Mason, a 6-foot-11 junior, had 15 and 7 in the state title game.

After the win, Mason and both his older and younger brothers attended the St. John's at Duke game. Duke watched Mason in the semifinals along with Notre Dame's Mike Brey. Plumlee's family visited Duke earlier in the week and both parents were at Saturday's game.

At this stage, the Blue Devils would appear to have the advantage for Scout.com's No. 39 prospect in the Class of 2009.

National Recruiting Director Dave Telep describes Plumlee as follows:

Native of Warsaw, Ind. Family has history of basketball success. Excellent prospect, big time student. Will rebound and can play facing the basket. As a junior began exerting himself inside and rebounding consistently. Elite player at his position.


In addition to the Plumlee family visiting, Kenny Hall, a 6-foot-9 insider from Stone Mountain (Ga.) Redan took an unofficial visit on Saturday. Scout.com's No. 62 prospect in the Class of 2009 was on Duke's campus.

One of the top bigs in the Southeast, Hall runs with the Georgia Stars traveling team program. One of the graduates of the Stars was William Avery, a former Duke Blue Devils guard.
