Dockery Will Pick Duke On Thursday

Patience, as they say, is a virtue. While over 40 commitments popped prior to the July open period, it was one of the ones that didn't happen which kept everyone guessing. Not anymore, Sean Dockery will be a Blue Devil.

Dockery Picks Duke

Sean Dockery, one of BCH's pre-summer Top 25 members, will announce at a Thursday press conference for the Duke Blue Devils. Dockery had mentioned all along that Duke was his favorite.

Apparently, Dockery spoke with Mike Krzyzewski this week and it didn't take long for him to accept the offer. The official word from family sources is that a press conference will take place Thursday at 7:15 p.m. at Dockery's high school.

However, through various outlets, BlueChipHoops has learned that there will be no surprises. Dockery is all set to announce for the Blue Devils.

"He'll make an announcement tomorrow [Thursday]," Steve Dockery, Sean's father said. "He spoke to [Coach K] this week. Sean talked to him, I didn't speak with him."

Duke now has commitments from JJ Redick. Michael Thompson, Lee Melchionni and Dockery. Redick is ranked among the Top 10 prospects, while Dockery is listed in BCH's pre-summer Top 25. Thompson ranks as a Top 40 prospect.
