Tyler Thornton Video & Tony Wroten

December 16, 2008

Tyler Thornton (PG/SG,6’2″, 2010), the Duke commit who will likely be coming in and run some point after Nolan Smith, is shown in this video accepting an All-Tournament Award. No basketball action in the video, though.

Tony Wroten ruled ineligible

Tony Wroten (SG, 6’4″, 2011), considered by some to be the #1 player in the 2011 class, has been ruled ineligible to play at his current high school:

“We’re fighting because it’s wrong what’s happening,” Wroten’s father, Tony Wroten Sr., said Monday. “We’re disputing what the district claims, and we’ll handle it in a legal manner.”

Wroten doesn’t seem likely to end up in the ACC but he’s still one of the premier players in the class and one to definitely keep an eye on.


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.
