    For the sake of clarity of conversation, I would like to ask that all the 2020-21 minutes conversation be moved to this thread: https://forums.dukebasketballreport...this-redundant

    Let's keep current roster conversation out of the 2021 recruiting thread, ok?

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

There seems to be buzz around Alabama here. With both Mark Williams and Paolo Banchero possibly on the roster in '21, playing time in the frontcourt at Duke will be limited at best as a freshman. It depends on his outlook, I suppose.
    Quick update on this one: Bediako cut his list to 5 today, including Alabama, Duke, Michigan, Ohio State, and Texas.

    FWIW, the Crystal Ball sees a certain tide pulling Canadians to Tuscaloosa.

    There were a flurry of high level commitments over the weekend.

    #5 in 2021, Jabari Smith to Auburn
    #27 in 2021, Franck Kepnang to Oregon. He will reclassify and join the 2020 class and enroll immediately.
    #45 in 2021, Alex Fudge to LSU
    #175 in 2021, Lucas Taylor to Clemson

    Also to note, Bryce McGowens (#25 nationally), Florida State's top recruit in their 2021 class opened his recruitment back up. Fairly significant news for them.

    The last day to register or add class at Univ. of Oregon was October 5. I guess stuff like "classes are closed" does not matter when you are tall and can run and jump.

    Given the new dates for the season, he could wait until the end of Fall semester.

    Alex Fudge - that kid has one sweet game.

    Sorry - slow day on Thanksgiving and I could not resist.

    A quick update on Caleb Houstan from Eric Bossi's mailbag this week: https://247sports.com/Article/UCLA-K...tte-153049752/

    "I donít feel near confident enough to make a Crystal Ball prediction on Houstan just yet, but if I had to bet Iíd I would say that Alabama and Michigan make up the upper tier while Duke and Virginia may still have a little ground to make up. This one is likely coming down to the wire."

    Bossi suggests he expects Houstan to sign before the end of the early signing period (Nov 11-Nov 18)

    If Atkinson does transfer to Duke, he'll be playing for a university that's younger and more athletic .

    He's already played three seasons. Is he transferring for this season or next season (or both, I guess with the new rule)? Or is he planning on playing at Yale this season and using the newly conferred extra season to transfer?

    Not playing this season. Currently in the transfer portal: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-ba...ransfer-spring

    Let's clarify this...It is Harvard that is the "Duke of the North"...Not Yale...Tommy Amaker is shaking his head in disgust at this thread right now.

    Ah, so he's a "real" transfer and not a grad transfer.

    Which is a shame, for him and many other real transfers -- presumably he doesn't get the windfall of the extra year of eligibility, meaning he could have played this season, still transferred (as a grad transfer) and played next season without any penalty.

    That's assuming Yale plays this year.

    But he could still transfer, sit out this year, then play the next two years.

    My understanding is that he would only be eligible for 1 year somewhere else as he has played 3 years already. If he transfers in the spring like he says he is going to, his first season would be the 21-22 season. I believe that is the one year where you can have a 5th year of eligibility, which would mean he couldn't take advantage of the extra year right?
