The Citizen Times has an article about Plumlee being released from his LOI at Stanford. There are a couple of quotes worth noting:
Indiana, Miami, Northwestern, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Xavier were among the programs that initially offered Plumlee a scholarship before he committed to Stanford in June. But the Gamecocks and Hoosiers have changed coaches since then.
â€œThere are about eight or nine schools that have contacted me, and theyâ€™re big-time programs you would know,â€ said Gaines (Plumlee’s HS coach), who would not get into specifics.
In regards to Duke assistants Johnny Dawkins getting the Stanford job:
Gaines said the Plumlees were aware for several days that Dawkins was likely to be named to that position but that didnâ€™t change the decision to request a release. â€œCoach Dawkins knows that Miles wants his release,â€ said Gaines.
Is Duke a potential destination?
Perky Plumlee would not comment on whether Duke might be a possibility since Miles Plumleeâ€™s younger brother, Christ School junior Mason Plumlee, committed to the Blue Devils in February. Duke didnâ€™t originally offer Miles Plumlee a scholarship but has one available due to forward Taylor Kingâ€™s transfer to Villanova.
This one looks like a long shot but Beilein did recruit Miles’ younger brother Mason hard and the whole family seemed very high on Beilein until Duke offered.
