Duke Pursuing Derrick Favors

April 14, 2008

Scout.com is reporting that Duke is now actively recruiting 6’9″ C Derrick Favors [membership required]. I wondered when Taylor King decided to transfer from Duke if it wasn’t somehow to allow Duke to recruit more bigs.

However, I wonder if Duke can even get into the mix now? Favors already had high profile schools after him.

Favors is currently considered the #1 prospect of the 2009 class by most recruiting services.
