Early Arrival!

In Recruiting by Brian Horace8 Comments

Apparently upon hearing about the transfer of Elliot Williams 2010 recruit Andre Dawkins is attempting to arrive in Durham a year early.

“We initiated the conversation,” Dawkins said. “We saw that Elliot was transferring and thought ‘they’re only going to have two guards, that’s kind of rough.’ I was going to go to Hargrave [Military Academy] for a year, but seeing the situation they  were in, I just want to be able to help.”

This obviously benefits Duke as they were prepared to only suit up 2 scholarship guards next season. A third, although green and inexperienced definitely will take some pressure off of Nolan Smith, Jon Scheyer and Kyle Singler.

  1. @dukeblogger Did K really say that?? My man!! Gottlieb is a bit too arrogant for me.

  2. @robertrscott He said it alright, it’s good to see him take a shot back once in a while. Gottlieb isn’t even the best of the rest at espn

  3. @dukeblogger Gottlieb=talking head. Reads headlines and thinks he knows anything.
