Coaches were able to speak to recruits in the class of 2019 for the first time on Thursday and five-star shooting guard Bryan Antoine was definitely contacted. He’s gotten calls or texts from several major schools like Louisville, Maryland, St. John’s, Rutgers and Stanford. He also got a voicemail from none other than Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and he was greatly encouraged by what he heard.
The 6’5″, 190-pound guard told Rivals about his call from Coach K and you can tell he’s pretty excited about it.
“Coach K called me this morning, talking about I was going to be his No. 1 priority,. He wanted to make sure I was going to be there with him.
“I’m not going to lie. I saw him pop up, Coach K, and I was jumping with joy. He’s a big name coach, just having him call me is pretty much an honor.”
Antoine said he also likes the freedom that Duke guards tend to have under Krzyzewski and that will likely help their case with him. The Tinton Falls, N.J. native is also playing with five-star guard Scottie Lewis and has said that he hopes they end up at the same school. Rivals does not yet have positional rankings for the class of 2019, but they do have him ranked as the No. 11 player overall.
