    The next great player to suffer the SLAM overhype?

    kid is definitely legit, I doubt he’ll suffer from any overhype…but I do see his freshman year going somewhat similar to a kid like Josh Selby’s. With the way Duke runs there stuff I’m guessing Seth and Tyler will take over majority of guard duties (assuming Nolan and Kyrie both leave) and Austin will be a shooter off the bench. Not sure how well he plays off the ball, but he’ll have to learn.

    Kyrie got the greenlight as a freshman, but thats because he just had dynamic speed and talent and was a pure point. I really like Quin Cook, but my guess is that both he and Austin will have to wait their turns before they get those starter minutes…but who knows
