Shavlik Randolph commits to Duke

<i>InsideCarolina</i>'s Clint Jackson reports that Shavlik Randolph has committed to Duke, citing sources close to the situation. Randolph will announce this decision at a press conference on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. at Raleigh (NC) Broughton High School.

The news of Randolph's commitment comes as little surprise to those in the recruiting world, as word has begun to leak out over the past weeks that the commitment was forthcoming. Randolph had an official visit scheduled for Oct. 12 to Chapel Hill. Other schools he was considering included Florida, N.C. State and Kansas.

Randolph also told IC a few weeks ago that Duke was in the lead, though he later retracted that statement.

The Blue Devils have now completed their six-man class, reaping the benefits of a national championship with the top recruiting class in the country to date.
