... however, by 'tough combo' you may well have meant a "tough dang combo" ... in which case you were too subtle for me.
Duke is likely on the outside looking in on Wiggins. J. Parker is a viable option, however, and I'm reasonably certain Duke will be a major player here. Michigan State could be Duke's toughest rival for Parker.
Just trying to put together a tentative list of current Duke targets from the class of 2014, and having listed Wiggins in the 2013 thread on the assumption he re-classifies, this is what I've got. I'm sure there are a number of others too. Others with more knowledge than I have should of course feel free to supplement.
Tyus Jones 6'0 171 out of Minnesota. Appears we're going real hard after this kid.
JaQual Richmond 6'1" 170, out of North Carolina.
Theo Pinson 6'6" 180, North Carolina. Been on him a long time already it seems like and he's just a rising junior!
Wayne Seiden, 6'5" 200, Boston
Jahlil Okafor 6'9" 270, Chicago. Everyone wants him.
Well in all fairness, Andrew Wiggin is pretty big in scifi circles himself...
A little Tyus Jones action
Really nice looking prospect.
Yeah, he is pretty legit. I doubt anyone would confuse Minnesota with Chicago, Indiana, NY, etc in terms of quantity of talent but it sounds like he is doing pretty well in the national tournaments.
It would be nice if my state could produce something a bit more than Nick Horvath (a limited bench player) or Kris Humphries (well kind of, I think Duke was much better off he didn't step foot on campus). The saving grace is 2 of our titles came within our state lines, however unless they build the Vikings a dome stadium our hosting of the Final Four run is all but over.
