Duke has extended an offer to Leslie Williams (aka "Leslie McDonald," but only after the coffee's kicked in -ed), making him the fourth player to be offered in the class of 2009.

"Duke has extended an offer to Leslie Williams"
In case you didn't know, he's good friends with recent signee Elliott McDonald.
Boynton is a 1/2 combo
McDonald is a 6'4" 2/3 combo
Murphy is a 6'10" 4/5 combo
Echenique is a burly, classic low-post player
In other words, this prospective class would complement each other splendidly.
Thanks for that post. I saw this page this morning (but I know it isn't always accurate):
I'd love to see McDonald, Boynton, Murphy, Painter (not offered yet I know), and Echenique suit up - that's a STRONG class...

I know it's Elliott Williams.
Mark inadvertently conflated Leslie McDonald to Leslie Williams. I responded with Elliott McDonald in an attempt at whimsical humor that apparently fell unnoticed and unmourned in some distant wilderness.
FWIW, no one in my family appreciates my sense of humor either.
We have a good shot at Boynton, but how do we stand with the other 3? Anyboyd have any info or feelings on how many of these 4 we may actually get? Just Curious!!!
any back up prospects out there, just in case none of these 4 sign else where.
If NONE of them sign else where we don't need a back-up plan do we?
Just Kidding (couldn't resist)
John Henson, Travis Wear, and David Wear are back-ups.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Duke is at least looking at Deshawn Painter, Jon Hood, and Terrell Vinson. Not sure how seriously. Mark can speak to this.
Let's keep in mind that targets can and will emerge later in the process. How many of us had heard of Olek Czyz a year ago?
Memo to self.
No more attempts at humor.
We are the leader for Boynton, I will be shocked if he signs anywhere but Duke. As for McDonald we have a good shot at him other schools involved besides us Tenn, Mem, and Carolina. There have been rumers that Duke is his dream school I fell real good about are chances of landing him.
Enhenique is the big guy we are going after we stand a good shot of landing him also. Other schools Vilinova, Miami, and the twerps. I believe we are the leader for his services right now, we will be in a dog fight with vilinova he likes them a lot he was at their midnight madness and loves the school. In the end I think we win out.
Murphy is the 4 guy we have offered this is guy that is hard to figure out, his dad played at BC so many people believe they lead, but he gave a interview a few weeks ago and after the interview I feel beter about landing him he mentioned Duke more than any other team, even when asked about other teams he found away to talk about Duke. I believe it comes down to Duke, BC and Florida.
