5 Star Texan Will Visit For Rivalry Game

Every year it is the toughest ticket in town. Every year it's sold out. So when Rasheed Sulaimon had a chance to attend the Duke-North Carolina game at Cameron, he and his family jumped at the chance.

"I will be visiting Duke during the North Carolina game," said Houston (Tex.) Strake Jesuit College Prep standout Rasheed Sulaimon. "We are getting into town early on Wednesday and will be staying until the afternoon on Thursday."

It's not the first time the five star scoring guard will have visited Durham, having made the trip back in October. However it will be the first time his entire family will be making the trip.

"We are all excited. I'm excited to see Duke again. I was there Oct 15th for the start of the season, and this is another chance to see Duke up close."

With offers from a who's who of college basketball including Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Texas A&M, Indiana, Baylor, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Oregon State, and Arizona, Sulaimon has no shortage of options. However, the Blue Devil offer, which came in early January after head coach Mike Krzyzewski had a chance to see the 6'3 scoring guard in person, left a bit of a mark.

"I like Duke a lot. The fan base is crazy and the school is really nice. Coach K is a great coach and a really good guy. I really like everything about Duke."

Sulaimon is ranked No. 19 overall in the 2012 class.
