According to Blue Devil Nation, Duke has now offered Austin Nichols (Class of 2013) of Briarcrest Christian High School in Memphis, TN a scholarship. Scout has him listed at 6-9, 205. Scout also has him ranked as a 5-star recruit and 5th best player at Center, although he’s really more of a PF/C. Coach K loves versatile players, so I expect him to be a perfect fit for the Blue Devils.
Depending on which scouting service you look at, he has up to 12 offers at the moment from such teams as Clemson, Butler, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, and Tennessee. Of course, something tells me to expect UNC to make an offer on him sometime in the near future.
Below is a highlight video of Austin Nichols, I hope you enjoy it. From the looks of it, I say slap Plumlee on the back of his jersey and let’s call him a Dukie.
