Waiting List For Wall To Get Longer?

John Wall's likely impending decision to let the early period pass without a commitment may mean a new player or two in his recruitment.

John Wall, the nation's top point guard, is likely to wait until the spring signing period to reach his decision. Should that happen, it's not out of the question another school or two jumps into the fray.

According to a source, Wall and the Duke Blue Devils have opened up the lines of communication. There is mutual interest from both parties though a source cautioned the relationship is "in its infancy stages."

To the best of our knowledge, Mike Krzyzewski and Wall have never spoken, at least not face to face. However, persons close to Wall and Duke have communicated as recently as this week.

Wall is considering Baylor, Kansas, Memphis, Kentucky, Oregon and North Carolina State. Earlier in the week Miami head coach Frank Haith dropped by Raleigh (N.C.) Word of God to let it be known that if Scout.com's No. 2 prospect waits until the spring, the Hurricanes would like to be considered.

Wall was in the news two weeks ago when he, along with Derrick Favors, spent time on N.C. State's campus giving the Pack an historic recruiting moment as the top two players in the class shared time together during Favors' official visit.
