Duke’s Jon Scheyer lands first 2022 commitment

Class of 2022 four-star center Kyle Filipowski committed to Duke on Thursday, becoming the first recruit landed by Blue Devils coach-in-waiting Jon Scheyer.”The continuation of a dynasty, but the beginning of a new journey,” the 6-foot-11, 230-pound center posted on Twitter.Scheyer, 33, was named in June as the successor to the legendary Mike Krzyzewski, who announced he is retiring after the 2021-22 season.”Coach K retiring didn’t change how I felt about Duke,” Filipowski told ESPN. “I’ve been building this relationship with Coach Scheyer for over six months now, and the vision he has, not just for me but for my class, is something that I can envision myself in. I believe in him and what he is planning. I think being a part of that and helping him make his own name at Duke would be something very special for both of us. I just wanted to carry on the dynasty of Duke but also create a foundation with Coach Scheyer.”
