Williams Can't Wait; Makes Decision

The recruitment of Elliot Williams was slated to make it to Friday. Scout.com's 14th ranked prospect couldn't wait. On Wednesday night he offered up a pledge to one of America's premier basketball institutions.

Elliot Williams is a member of the Duke Blue Devils. On late Wednesday night, Scout.com's No. 14 prospect picked Mike Krzyzewski's Blue Devils over Tennessee, Virginia and Memphis.

"Things moved forward real quickly tonight," one source told Scout.com. "He just kept coming back to Duke."

The Blue Devils, Williams' first official visit, landed the all-stater who averaged 25 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4 assists as a junior. The Memphis St. Georges prospect erupted last spring and continued his stellar play throughout the summer. He'll man the shooting guard position where he brings a unique athletic style and competitive fire.

Duke adds Williams to a class that already includes No. 88 power forward Olek Czyz of Reno by way of Poland.
