North Carolina is Recruiting Austin Rivers

It seems that it is official, despite what Austin Rivers (PG/SG, 6’4″, 2011) says about being committed to Florida, he isn’t. After saying he was still committed to the Gators, he started entertaining discussions with the Duke Blue Devils and even took an unofficial visit to Durham. While it isn’t clear if Rivers is just looking around, or if there are real problems in Gainesville that might be giving him pause, one thing is for sure: Austin Rivers is not really committed to Florida, and he might end up somewhere else.

Now that has come to fruition as the news that the North Carolina Tar Heels are also in the mix for Rivers, and he told that he was listening. UNC has already lined up to see Rivers play and Rivers seems ready to add them to his ‘list’, which is an odd discussion for someone to have if they are committed.

This recruitment is now back in full swing it seems, with the old rivalry between the Heels and the Devils right on the front lines.

Rivers, a slight-of-build player from Florida, has really started to come into his own as possibly the top SG of the 2011 class. The son of Doc Rivers, he’s developed into a very prolific big guard.

    I wonder if ol roy’s recruits even get tired of him recruiting right over them. In this case, strickland, bullock and hairston all would be impacted by Rivers. Ah, the smell of desperation.
    In any case, Rivers loves Duke and Ol Roy is too late to this party.

      Yep ole Mike won’t recruit over any of his guys no no. Just around them, under them and beside them! Maybe he can make it in Dukes 6 maybe 7 man rotation and the other six McDonald’s All Americans can watch for 4 years. Yep ole Mike will sure be able to teach them how to cuss if nothing else. LOL! ANYBODY BUT DUKE! Yankee go home!
