Junior center commits to Duke

Duke, which is losing 7-foot-1 banger Brian Zoubek off its 2010 NCAA championship team, has added to its low-post presence with a commitment from 6-9 junior Tyler Adams of Brandon High in Mississippi.

Adams, who was visited last week at his high school by Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, weighs 245 pounds and plays exclusively in the lane.

Tyler is a very skilled young man, especially in the low post,” said Larry Stamps, who coaches Adams with the Jackson Panthers club team. “He definitely is a low-post center, which is unusual now because a lot of the big kids like to face up. He likes to play down low and has the body to do it.” ranks Adams as the No. 81 player in the Class of 2011. Adams is Duke’s second commitment in the class, joining 6-6 small forward Michael Gbinije of Richmond, Va.
