John Calipari is the men's college basketball coach known for recruiting the 1-and-done players. Coach K is the men's college basketball coach who's currently doing it the best, though.
Duke's 2018 class might be its best ever. The Blue Devils have commitments from the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 recruits in the class.
At the McDonald's All-American game, a reporter asked some of the Duke commits why they went with Mike Krzyzewski over John Calipari.
Here's what a couple of them said, via SEC Country:
No. 1 recruit R.J. Barrett
“Coaching style is different. They play in a different conference so they have to be different. They’re both the best coaches in the game. Coach Cal plays in the SEC. It’s a bunch of athletes that just run up and down. Duke, you can still run up and down, but it’s more sets and stuff like that. It’s really where I felt most comfortable.”
No. 3 recruit Zion Williamson
“They’re similar pitches, but each school has a uniqueness about it. Both of them said that I’d be surrounded by other talented players and it would help me get better to practice with them every day. I don’t think it was much different.”
Kentucky's 2018 class is nothing to be ashamed of, too. The Wildcats' class is the No. 6 class in the country.
