Jaemyn Brakefield Update

Jaemyn Brakefield committed to Duke in October. It sort of came out of the blue, so to speak, for most fans but not for Brakefield.

As it turns out, he’d had Duke on his mind for a long time: “I’ve been talking with him (Krzyzewski) for a couple of years now,” Brakefield told the Fayetteville Observer. “But it’s still surreal now, being able to live out my dream and go to a place that I’ve always wanted to go and get better. Being able to do it is still surreal.”

One question we’d love to ask him is why.
