Not necessarily news, but Seth has some credibility, despite trying to avoid being called a Duke homer:
http://twitter.com/SethDavisHoopsNo. Rivers is recruiting them and Coach K and Billy D have spoken about it. RT @David4242: Is it unethical for Duke to steal FLA's Rivers?
btw all the stories about Duke's recruiting renaissance neglect to mention Austin Rivers, who I predict will also be a Blue Devil.
Can you say momentum?
Any new information with how the commitment of KI will affect Austin and his recruitment.
If I am Beal and Duke really is my dream school, I commit before the HS Season rather than wait on Austin Rivers.
Duke should accept such a commit, since there is very little difference between #1 SG and # 2 SG.
Then unless someone leaves early, tere are only 2 scholarships left across Rivers, Plumlee 3 and Quincy Miller, assuming one and only one of Barnes and Roscoe Smith end up at Duke.
Recruiting talk like this makes my fingers tingle.
I love the sound of Beal and Rivers together, especially if there is a chance we lose KI (or HB if we get him) after 1 year.
Miller sounds like a super stud. Marshall seems like he has great potential and works to get to a high level.
I agree. Talk like this, where we are potentially so flush that we have to choose between top 15 players, is really a nice turn around. Hope it plays out this well.
You guys and gals need to be patient and let things play out. There are many good things in the works I believe. We may know one answer Nov 12th, another may take a while, just focus on this year's team
For most of us, we're at DBR because we enjoy supporting Duke basketball. I.e. the sport of basketball, not the sport of recruiting.
Forget about the anxiety of recruiting, the payoff -- getting to watch our recruits actually play Duke basketball -- is in the here and now. If you focus too much on the former, you'll miss the latter and the latter is the point of the whole thing!
recruitment is part of the game.
OTOH, people who don't find the recruiting aspect of basketball at all interesting or important don't have to read or post in recruiting threads. They can just wait for kids magically to show up on the court and talk exclusively about the games.

So everyone agrees that both recruiting and games are worthy of discussion?
Good. Glad we got that settled.
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sport...,3030685.storyWinter Park junior basketball star Austin Rivers elaborated on his recruitment at the Sentinel's Varsity Basketball Media Day, saying he remains orally committed to Florida but Duke has pulled up right alongside of the Gators
This part is just funny:
"I'm not feeling Kentucky," Rivers said. "I have a really good feeling right now about Florida and Duke, but I just don't want to go to Kentucky. Nothing against them. Great program, great coach. It's just not for me."
