Carrick Felix a Devil

Per his facebook page Carrick Felix as verbally committed to the Duke Blue Devils (thanks @enick66). This may round out next years class, with the possibility of adding Michael Haynes as well.

I believe this is the first JuCo player under Coach K and marks an entirely new recruiting strategy, one that seems to really be working. Nate James is really paying off as a recruiter.

Carrick is a 6-6, 200 pound athletic wing type of player, the sort that Duke has recruited in the past. This is probably the missing piece to the puzzle and definitely fills some holes in the Devil roster. Loaded with guards and big men, it’s the in between position that was lacking. A Dave McClure type although Felix is loaded with much more in the “hops: department.
