Crews Returns From Winston-Salem

One of the most celebrated recruits of the summer open period visited Wake Forest's campus this past weekend to find out exactly what the Demon Deacons had to offer. Duke Crews visited and according to the Hampton, Virginia native, the visit was a very good experience.

"It went good. It went real good," Duke Crews said about his visit to Wake Forest. "Yeah it was fun. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed hanging out with the team and all of that."

The 6-foot-7 power forward had previously taken a visit to Xavier but he narrowed his list of schools to Wake Forest, Tennessee, Georgetown, and North Carolina a few weeks ago.

This weekend, his visit consisted of meeting with the academic advisor, the athletic director and he got to play pick up ball with the team. Crews also went to the football game and hung out with the team. So what all did Wake Forest's coaching staff have to say?

"Basically the same thing that they've been telling me, that I'm the top priority for them and that's why I was the first recruit that they brought in."

"Pretty much I had a whole lot of questions answered. They did a really good job of that, answering all the questions that me and my mom had," Crews explained. "The overall experience for me was fun. I had a lot of fun."

Wake Forest's coaching staff also brought 2006 commit L.D. Williams in for his official visit. Williams and Crews knew each other prior to the visit because they play on the same AAU team.

Crews also said that his mom got the chance to ask a number of questions and really had a chance to get to know the coaching staff better.

"I talk to the coaches all the time my mom doesn't get to talk to them as much. It was pretty much for her to get some sort of a comfort level from the schools that are recruiting me. She got a whole lot of stuff answered."

Crews said that he will take his visit to Tennessee next weekend, then he'll head to Georgetown the weekend after, and his final visit will be in Chapel Hill the weekend of the 14th.
