Nothing new here but Congrats to Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow for being selected for the USA roster at the 2014 Nike Hoop Summit.
and to Jahlil Okafor for being named USA Player of the year.
Also congrats to Duke commit Luke Kennard for his invite to USA Basketball U18 camp.
As for news on Jabari Parker or Rodney Hood, none really. Yes it appears that Jabari did apply for sophomore housing but that doesn’t mean anything except that he is still figuring things out, it’s not an assurance or guarantee of everything, just covering bases. So no one get too excited until there is something to be excited about. No one knows until they know. Rodney however I’m pretty sure will be taking his talents to the pros, not that I have any inside info but it does make sense (don’t take that as fact, rumor or anything – just a feeling).
Also I am working on a site revamp so in the coming days and weeks there may be some periodic weirdness should you visit, trying to keep those to a minimum but that’s how the web works. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for what they way want to see or what they absolutely can’t stand, I am all ears. Feel free to email through the site as it comes directly to me, or comment on this post.
Recruiting wise Duke is looking to peek in on 2015 C Henry Ellenson (per @WisBBYearbook), and per @BlueDevilLair Duke reached out to 2015 C Josh Sharma.
