Sumlar No Longer A Blue Devil

Brian Sumlar, a recruit that many analysts believed was a major coup for the Blue Devils, has withdrawn his commitment from Duke.

"Yes, I am no longer firmly committed to Duke," said Brian Sumlar in a Sunday night phone interview. "I have some issues that concern my family and so I have to look at other options. I still like Duke a lot, but I am no longer committed to them."

Sumlar said assistant Charles London was taken aback, but fully supportive of his change of heart.

"Honestly, he was disappointed, but he understood. They were very easy to work with since it is based on a family issue. I appreciate that, and they still want me, but I have to look around."

Despite withdrawing his commitment, Sumlar says he has yet to hear from any other schools at this time.
