[rl]Little did Mike Krzyzewski and his staff know that when they walked into the house of Semi Ojeleye they would be walking out with a commitment.
As it turns out, the 6-foot-6 small forward from Ottawa (Kan.) High and his family had been feeling good about Duke for a while and they were ready to end the process on Sunday.
"We've been thinking about it for a little bit and it was feeling right," Ojeleye told Rivals.com. "So we figured we wanted to get it done because we were ready and it was unfair to the other schools to drag it out until signing day or something like that."
According to the No. 30 player in the class of 2013, Coach K was quite excited about the news.
"That's the most excited I've ever seen him," said Ojeleye. "I think it was a good thing for them."
Ruggedly built, Ojeleye is a power wing who has worked hard to develop his outside skill. He can bang inside, plays hard and is a tireless worker in the gym.
Still after a huge summer on the EYBL circuit with MoKan Elite, he's having a hard time believing he made it to this level.
"It's on of those things that you dream about it a couple of times when you are a kid but you don't think it will really happen," said Ojeleye. "Then when it does happen it's surreal. It's just a blessing."
Ojeleye is the Blue Devils second commitment from the class of 2013 and he joins top 40 shooting guard Matt Jones as an early commitment.
Now, he's focused on preparing to help out in Durham.
"Just talking with them they think that my body is ready so that's a plus," said Ojeleye. "Mentally college is a big step and the grind of playing against grown men is an adjustment.
"They are going to help me along the way and I've been listening to good people so I should be alright."
