TDD caught up with the lanky rising junior recently at his Maryland home. We asked him for his current school list.
"Right now, I like Duke, Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Arizona, NC State, Maryland, Louisville and Georgia Tech."
Five schools from the ACC in that list?
"Yeah, well I love the ACC," he replied. "The big rivalries, the great players. It's what I watch."
And according to sources close to the staff in Durham -- Duke has plans to make Kevin Durant one of their top targets in the junior class. In fact -- Durant says that he's already feeling the love.
"Coach Wojo has been sending me lots of stuff," he said. "Just talking about how Coach K loves me and stuff. I mean, I could see myself playing in Cameron Indoor, with those fans. And Coach K is just a great guy."
Durant says that while the staff in Duke has not officially offered -- he feels like one may come in the not-so-distant future. He thinks he's already got firm offers from Maryland, NC State, Arizona and Texas.
"I feel like I want to take some visits soon, but right now there's no real leader. I'll probably (commit) sometime in the middle to later part of next year."
