Durham, NC (Associated Press) Duke University Director of Athletics Kevin White has announced that the men’s basketball program has signed a national letter of intent with their eleventh Plumlee, seventeen year-old Morgan Plumlee.
“This signing is significant in many respects,” White stated Thursday, “in that it cements the commitment between the Plumlee family and Duke University.” Coach Mike Krzyzewski has plundered the Plumlee pipeline for years now, signing brothers Mason, Miles, Marshall, Magnus, Maddox, Matthew, Maverick, Mitchell, Mordechai, Milton, and now Morgan.
Coach K has also been involved in a first on the recruiting trail, as he has been actively pursuing the Plumlee’s unborn twelfth son which the parents plan on naming Modestus. “The second trimester is critical to birth weight,” Krzyzewski stated, but added that mother Leslie “has been through this twelve times so far, so we’re sure he’ll be healthy and ready (to play basketball).” The couple’s only other child is a daughter named Madeleine, who will instead play volleyball at Notre Dame.
