Duke Basketball Lands Talented Forward Michael Gbinije

Mike KlineAnalyst IMarch 12, 2010

On Thursday, the Duke Blue Devils secured a verbal commitment from four-star small forward Michael Gbinije.

Gbinije, a 2011 product out of Richmond, Virginia's Benedictine School had offers from more than a dozen schools including Georgetown, Villanova, and Syracuse.

Gbinije, pronounced Ben-ni-jay, was in Cameron Indoor Stadium last Saturday to witness Duke's 32-point drubbing of arch-rival UNC.

Another Blue Devil recruit, Quincy Miller tweeted congratulations to Gbinije Thursday. Scout.com is also reporting the verbal commitment.

He is Duke's first recruit to commit out of the class of 2011 and will provide an athletic wing-forward with a sweet stroke.

Duke also is actively recruiting Miller, a power forward in that class as well as guards Quinn Cook, Austin Rivers, and center Marshall Plumlee, brother of current Devils Miles and Mason.
