Analyzing Coach K's recruiting success 

July, 1, 2014
Coach Mike Krzyzewski has been the head coach at Duke since 1980 and has coached dozens and dozens of players who have made an NBA roster. He is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and will go down as one of the all-time great coaches in college basketball. There are many factors behind his enormous success, one of which is how well he has recruited over four decades at Duke. He has had some outstanding assistants, but they have come and gone while he remained the face of the program and the reason why prospects still come to Duke.

In college athletics, overall success is a direct correlation of a coach's ability to evaluate, recruit and secure the very best student athletes.
