It is not surprising that a lot of college recruits are mentioning the Duke Blue Devils right now. Mike Krzyzewski won his fifth national championship with the team last season as well as gaining his 1000th career win in 2015. The team also sent three players to the NBA in the first round of the Draft in June.
SNY.tv basketball insider Adam Zagoria saying that multiple recruits are throwing around Duke’s name right now. That seems to be pretty obvious with one of the top tier basketball programs in the country.
It's not an exaggeration to say that many of the big-time 2016 and 17 kids are all talking about Duke. They have huge mo on recruiting now.

Although the Blue Devils don’t have any commitments for the 2016 or 2017 classes right now, I would expect that change rather soon. The Blue Devils currently have the second ranked recruiting class for the 2015 season and if that pans out well for them, they could hearing their named tossed around a lot more this season.
