    Justin Anderson: 2012 Prospect

    Okay, it's REALLY early to be talking about 2012, but this kid has already stated duke is his "dream school." He's a top 10 prospect in the class, and incredible athlete and also a very good shooter. After watching a couple videos, i'm kind of hyped up about him, check it out:

    heck ya! dude has got some game... he played on joshua hariston's hs team so hopefully josh has this kid drinking the cool aid... the only thing working against us is all the wing/forward/guards allready on the roster... felix, gbingie (sp), and dawkins who could likely move to the 3 position will all be on the team plus we are recruiting JP tokoto (who i think is going to unc) who plays the same position. so hopefully the depth we have will not scare him away cuz we could have some serious athleticism on the team in the future... man i love the direction duke is heading! fun time to be a devils fan!

    *edit now that i've looked at scout i can see we have intrest in the 1,2,3, and 4 SFs so hopefully anderson understands the way recruting works and doesnt feel slighted by the fact we are in contact with other players at his postion.... i guess tokoto is the #1 target cuz he is the only one with an offer but i wonder where anderson falls on the coaching staffs list in terms of the most desired player in 2012.

    It's still pretty early in the game and Duke is in the evaluation stage with a number of folks not on that scout.com list, including Alex Murphy, whose brother Duke recruited before he committed to Florida, and Tony Warren's son T.J. Warren was a fine player at State in the late 1970s.

    hmm.. nobody taller than 6'7". sort of surprising.

    I think the reason nobody is over 6'7" is because they haven't all grown into their bodies yet,Gordon Heyward was like 6'2" until his senior year then grew to 6'9".I wouldn't be too worried about it,their is still along time untill we start heavily recruiting these guys.

    I'm pretty sure they're still growing.

    I really, really, really like Justin Anderson. He's 15 and he's already built like a man. I'm no professional, but I see him being a very good player.

    Justin is 16; date of birth 11-19-1993. He certainly can finish at the rim!

    Yes indeed. I am good friends with T.J. Warren and he is great. He goes to local Durham Riverside high school and was the conference player, and regional player of the year this year as a sophomore. He is a 6'6 SF, who could probably grow a couple more inches, and could possibly move to SG. He is a heck of a player, Duke should be looking at.

    He already has offers from VT, and USC.

    As we all know, Kyrie is a potential two-and-done player, so we might need a replacement as soon as in two years. I just found this:

    http://www.highschoolhoop.com/recrui...as-and-others/

    Looks like a really great kid. Any thoughts?

    L.J. Rose---yeah, pretty sure he's on Duke's radar. From what I read, apparently has a close relationship with former Blue Devil Daniel Ewing, which can't hurt.

    here's hoping we see him for two years. no reason, though, other than his talent to suggest otherwise.
