Josh Hairston and Tyler Thornton commit to Duke

September 13, 2008

Duke got verbal commitments over the weekend from two top recruits who were visiting.

Tyler Thornton (PG/SG, 6’2″, 2010) and Josh Hairston (SF/PF, 6’8″, 2010) both committed to the Blue Devils and should see playing time for Coach K. Not sure if Tyler Thornton’s commitment will effect any other recruits’ decisions (such as Kenny Boynton), but maybe not since Boynton and Thornton are in two different high school classes.

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


Emmanuel Negedu, redux

May 23, 2008

Indiana Hoosiers site InsideTheHall.com has a good breakdown on Emmanuel Negedu’s (6’7″, PF, 2008 ) options and where he might end up. All of the schools would seem to offer a lot of immediate playing time, including Georgia Tech.
