Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils have landed an elite point guard from St. Patrick (Elizabeth, NJ). Kyrie Irving, a top 20 recruit according to MaxPreps.com 2010 Top 100, made a verbal commitment to Duke on Thursday. Irving averaged 16 points per game as a junior for head coach Kevin Boyle after transferring from Kimberley Academy in Montclair, helping the team compile a 30-3 record and winning New Jersey’s Tournament of Champions.
We have recently produced two new basketball DVDs featuring Kevin Boyle. Boyle is the Head Basketball Coach at St. Patrick’s High School (NJ). Boyle has compiled more than 500 career victories and was named the USA Today National Coach of the Year in 2007 and New Jersey Coach of the Year in 2009. His teams have won the New Jersey State Championship four times since 2003. Boyle is one of only three coaches in the nation with the elite “Team Jordan” Nike Grassroots Basketball Program. He is one of the top coaches at the prestigious NIKE All-American Camp and a sought after clinician across the country and abroad.
