Devils Hosting Big Time Visitor This Weekend

This weekend marks the first official visit for New Jersey five star point guard Kyrie Irving as he makes his way to Durham. Speculation has run wild that Irving may not make it through the weekend without a commitment - something the talented prospect addressed on Thursday morning.

"There is a possibility that I could commit, yes," Kyrie Irving told TDD. "But I will not commit on my visit. I want to be able to come home and talk things over with my parents on however many visits I take."

Irving will be on campus beginning Friday and will spend a total of 48 hours with the Duke coaches and players - leaving sometime on Sunday.

Many recruiting analysts feel the Blue Devils may be the team to beat for Irving after he eliminated long time leader Indiana on the heels of in-home visits with both programs as well as Seton Hall, Connecticut, Texas A&M, and Georgia Tech. Since those visits, Connecticut has apparently been eliminated as well.

On the heels of the Duke visit, Irving told TDD that the official visit could very well be the final piece to the Blue Devil puzzle.

"I'm going to be looking at the campus and the facilities. I want to go with some of the guys to classes to see what it's like to be a student and an athlete there. I want to know what it'd be like if I end up there."

Throughout the entire recruiting process, the Blue Devils and Irving have gone over and talked through a number of issues, but one message has remained clear to the nation's No.2 rated point guard and No.5 overall prospect.

"Coach has told me a lot that he wants me to be their point guard."
