DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Alex Murphy is back on his original track at Duke.
He originally was on track to be an incoming freshman this year, but finished high school early in Spring 2011 hoping to get a jump start on his first year at Duke. Then he suffered a concussion during a practice and ultimately redshirted.
Now he's fully healthy and ready for a second chance at his first full season playing for the Blue Devils.
And though he's already been around for a year, Murphy might wind up being one of the most important members of what coach Mike Krzyzewski calls a four-man recruiting class.
It consists of two highly touted incoming freshmen and redshirts Murphy and Marshall Plumlee.
