I meant to post this a few days ago, but Dante Taylor (PF, 6’8″, 2009) seems to really like Pittsburgh. If that holds true, then Maryland would be on the outside looking in for an in-state recruit, something Terp fans don’t want to hear right now. But these things can shift quickly, so you never know.
Kenny Boynton lives up to the hype

Duke target Kenny Boynton(PG/SG, 6’2″, 2009) is making headlines at the Reebok Camp. According to the story, Boynton has become a ‘lock’ to be named a McDonald’s All American.
Duke Basketball Recruiting is changing
This article from the Omaha World-Herald talks in depth about how Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has had to change how he recruits:
Though Krzyzewski includes former Duke stars Grant Hill and Jason Williams in the same talent category as U.S. team members Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard, he said there was a time Duke avoided guys with the NBA in their eyes.
“Because they didn’t want to go to college,” he said. “Now that pool has to be recruited. But you still have to be careful to recruit the right ones.”
John Wall Update
At one time it was widely thought that Wall would end up at Memphis, but, to put it tactfully, “things have changed”. Wall’s new trimmed list includes Oregon, Oklahoma State and Baylor.
However, as recently as two days ago, Wall added Kansas, Kentucky and N.C. State. Interesting.
