Mike Krzyzewski and his staff had the best recruiting class by far in the ACC, landing three McDonald All Americans. They signed 6-8 forward Kyle Singler (Medford, Ore./South Medford), 6-3 guard Nolan Smith (Mouth of Wilson, Va./Oak Hill) and 6-7 small forward Taylor King (Santa Ana/Mater Dei). Singler is a talented and multi-dimensional forward who should be an impact player from the time he steps on campus. Smith and King will give the Blue Devils additional help on the perimeter. Duke lost out on Patrick Patterson recently who would have given them a much needed low-post presence, but they did a masterful job with their perimeter signees.
