Plumlee is averaging 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game this season for the Blue Devils. Though both his brothers are now playing in the NBA, this big man has been in Duke’s ROTC program since 2012 and will serve immediately following his graduation next year. At 7-feet tall, Plumlee is four inches taller than the 80-inch Army height limit but was granted a special waiver to be eligible.
