Blue Devils Land Deng
On Monday evening, Luol Deng began calling schools. Our source indicated that Deng had began dialing the digits and letting people in the loop know that he's headed to Duke University. The Blue Devils played an exhibition game on Monday night but we know that at least one school received a call from Deng on Monday evening.
On Tuesday at a press conference at the school, Deng will commit to Duke and teammate Charlie Villanueva will pick Illinois.
Mike Krzyzewski landed Kris Humphries (a player ranked in our Top 20) and Deng, the prospect whom we rank just behind LeBron James in the current senior class. Deng's versatility did not go unnoticed at the summer camp scene. He's a young man ready to contribute to a major player early in his career. He's basketball smart, athletically gifted and coachable. And, he's headed to Duke University.
Deng visited Virginia, Indiana, Duke and Missouri during his recruitment. His final official visit was to Durham and he had taken a trip unofficially last spring.
