When I finally decided on Duke I knew it was the right choice.
It was funny how me and Tyus [Jones] told Coach K too!
We called him the night before we announced, and he definitely wasn’t expecting the call.
We both texted him and said that we had a concern and there was something that we wanted to talk to him about. So we did a conference call and Tyus said: ‘Coach K we’ve got something that we need to tell you…’ And I said: ‘We wanna let you know that we’re coming to Duke!’
It was funny because he didn’t say anything. He was quiet for like 30 or 45 seconds. I had to say: ‘Coach? You there?’
He said he was at a loss for words, but he started talking and he was just really happy on the phone the whole talk. It was fun to have a legend like Coach K be that excited about us coming to his school. He actually thanked us for trusting him, and I really liked that. I know I made the right decision and that feels great.
