Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski Being Internally Investigated For Possible Recruiting Violation

Noting that "proper adherence to NCAA bylaws has always been, and will continue to be, a cornerstone of Duke Athletics," a Dook spokesman confirmed the school is looking into whether coach Mike Krzyzewski violated any rules after reportedly offering a scholarship to a recruit during a summer tournament.

Krzyzewski would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for that pesky Alex Poythress telling about his AAU team's tournament in Orlando, Fla.

On Tuesday night, after the AAU Super Showcase, the 6-foot-7 Northeast (Tenn.) forward picked up an offer from Duke and head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

"It felt pretty good," Poythress said Thursday morning. "It was pretty exciting to talk to Coach K. He said he saw me play at the Super Showcase and Peach Jam, and he liked what he saw."


Just follow the money.
