Ryan Kelly Picks Duke

October 9, 2008

Duke basketball secured a big prize in the class of 2009 by getting a commitment from Ryan Kelly (PF, 6’10”, 2009).

Kelly made his announcement along with Jordan Hamilton (SF, 6’7″, 2009), who chose Texas, on ESPNU’s Recruiting Insider.

Kelly has a nice game, a great running jumper and a very fluid offensive prowess. He’s worked very hard and moved from a relative unknown into a player who player on the U-17 USA basketball roster over the summer and a highly sought after prospect. A big win for the Blue Devils.

As always, if you’re a college basketball fan who can’t get enough of this stuff, sign up for the email list.
