According to BDN and our buddy Watzone, Tony Parker claims a Duke offer.
The rest of the post is premium.BDN: Can you talk about your overall visit and what you did from when you arrived until when you left?
TP: It was a great visit I really enjoyed it. It’s a great school and it has a really good basketball atmosphere. We got there kind of late but I still got to see quite a bit of the campus. I got to watch the blue and white game; I really enjoyed seeing how they play and how everything works.
Here we go Tony!
Be a great addition to the duke team.Saw him walking out of the gym after the festivities friday night and the kid is a beast(huge).Looked like he coulda been a football recruit.Here's to seeing tony in a duke uni..
Duke 4 life---No excuses!!
May I claim the privilege of making the first Eva Longoria joke in this thread?
"I hope this means 4 years of Eva Longoria courtside at Cameron."
Cool, that's out of my system.
Anyway, going back to the youngest Anthony Parker, this guy is enormous! Only 6'9" and almost 280lb! And he has agility? That's impressive.

Coach K is coming to Atlanta tonight to see Tony Parker play.
--Jason "Parker is biiig!" Evans“Coach K isn’t coming for a casual visit — Duke loves Tony and they want to sign him very badly,” Miller Grove coach Sharman White said. “He’s a 6-9 guy who can make things happen in the paint. They like his ability to score, and they think he’s a great kid — a ‘Duke kind of kid.’”
Parker, who has built a close relationship with Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt, says he has no favorites.
“It’s exciting that Duke will be here,” Parker said. “They obviously have a great program and I’m definitely considering them.”
Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk

Would anyone in the know like to give some scouting information about Parker? I know that he is a big space eater but I am confused about how skilled he is. I had thought that he was 5 star top 20 type recruit but in looking at the various rankings he seems to be ranked in the 35-75 range. Is he more of a project or will he be ready to compete right off the bat? How does he compare to Tyler Adams?
Sounds like a Shelden Williams clone, and that is a huge compliment.
