Coach K's Grandson Announces Commitment

Michael Savarino is following in the footsteps of his famous grandfather out of Duke University

Mike Krzyzewski concluded his 42nd and final season as the Blue Devils' head coach shortly before the guard entered the transfer portal

Savarino announced his commitment to play for NYU on Monday night

Due to his family ties, Savarino did not get extra playing time

He scored 12 points in 11 games last season despite playing just four minutes during his second season

Savarino wrote on Instagram that Duke means more to him than he could ever express when announcing his decision to enter the transfer portal

Playing basketball for my grandfather at this special place has always been a dream of mine.

Duke's basketball program is undoubtedly more prestigious than NYU's
