The word is out, and IC has confirmed, that Tar Heel target Shelden Williams, a 6-8 PF from Midwest City (OK) committed to Duke after his in-home visit with the Blue Devils last night.
The news comes as no surprise, as Williams has been saying Duke was his leader since before the start of the summer. He was scheduled to visit North Carolina later this month.
Williams, ranked No. 5 in our Consensus Rankings, will make a formal announcement on Tuesday.
Duke now has five commitments from the Class of 2002 and has one target for the sixth - Shavlik Randolph, who has an in-home visit with Coach K tonight, having met with Carolina's Matt Doherty last night.
