Duke and Coach K One Step Closer to Domination


In Monday’s Smack, we told you about how Duke and Coach K were shaking up the balance of power in the college world by squeezing Indiana out of the picture for Kyrie Irving and luring Austin Rivers (Doc’s son) to campus for a visit, even though he’s officially committed to Florida.

And tonight there’s more.

In an exclusive to HighSchoolHoop.com, Austin Rivers, ranked No. 5 in HSH’s Top 50 players in the country, told us that while he’s sill officially committed to the Gators, he’s opening up to let Duke recruit him. How does that work? Go HERE for the HSH article.

All in all, it’s definitely not a good sign for Florida, especially since Rivers admits that he’s “loving” Duke right now.

    Too bad UNC is stacked up with a top 5 freshman class and a nice 2010 class too. Not to mention the return of Ed Davis.

    Isn’t that a violation or at least ethically wrong?

    Such is the case with super early commits. I wouldn’t be surprised is Rivers renegs and heads to Duke. Kyrie is also leaning there. As long as Coach K is at Duke they’ll always have a shot at the TOP talent in the country.
