    It’s gone now - or I can’t find it. Can we delete this?

    The news that Travis Branham from 247Sports put in a crystal ball selection for Milwaukee is interesting. The Duke insiders, or at least 2 of them, recently put in picks for Duke and then increased their confidence level. There's another Duke insider, Adam Rowe, and he hasn't changed his pick for Milwaukee. There's conflicting information out there. The news for Trevor Keels late was all towards Duke. This one is not pulling in the same direction. I suppose we'll find out eventually.
    Adam Rowe used to post on this board some. That's your daily DBR trivia.

    He doesn't appear to follow Duke on instagram, and they do not appear to follow him. Seems incredibly unlikely he's coming based on the way we run social media accounts with recruits.

    I'm predicting that he will commit to Clemson. Go Tigers.

    Clemson? Aren't they a football school?

    Duke and potential Duke guys:

    3. Banchero
    4. Baldwin
    21. Keels
    27. Griffin
    89. Blakes

    Observations:

    -Griffin's ranking has slid from top 8 to 27 in less than 12 months. Not playing competitive ball at all in 2021 is a huge factor in that. But that can't really be all. The same thing happened to Jalen Johnson, and he ended up at around ~#13.
    -Keels dropped a few spots
    -Blakes is no[w] solidly in the top 100. Love the improvement, and he may be better than his ranking indicates
    247 has released their final rankings.

    Here's how they have the Duke (and potential Duke) guys:

    2. Banchero
    5. Baldwin
    9. Griffin
    19. Keels
    178. Blakes

    Blakes being left out of the top-150 is a surprise. In the 247 Composite Rankings, which combines 247's rankings with some others (I don't know which ones), Blakes is #102, and the #16 point guard. But according to 247, he's #178 nationally and the #25 point guard in the class.

    TBH I couldn't care less about Blakes ranking. By all accounts he's the type of character guy and leader that we want in the program for multiple years. Honestly, if he's ranked lower maybe that will temper his PT expectations and further mitigate the potential for him to transfer!

    For those who've followed the (incredibly brief) TyTy Washington/Duke recruitment fling, TyTy has risen to No. 16 on the 247 board and a 5-star recruit. He's set a decision date of May 15 and will choose between UK, KU, LSU, Oregon, Baylor, and Arizona. This is obviously not Duke-related recruiting at this point, but I enjoy typing TyTy, so there you go.

    have these kids really been evaluated in 2 years? I'm with you....i'm more impressed with his character and will to win.

    Steph Curry and Damian Lillard were 3 stars evaluated by 247 back in the day. You just never know.

    First of all, no they weren't. 247 was launched in 2010, and both Curry and Lillard were already stars in college by then.

    Second, I've never understood this argument. People have won the lottery too, but it's still really, really, really (really!) unlikely that you'll win tomorrow if you buy a ticket.

    That's right. And Tom Brady was a sixth round draft pick. It's fruitless to even bother with evaluations and grades.

    There were ranking services back then, including Scout and Rivals, and RSCI, which you frequently cite.

    And neither Curry nor Lillard were ranked in the top 100 as a far as I could tell. Their development was comparable to winning a lottery??

    Recruiting rankings are nice, but they are not destiny.
