Domino Effect Resulting From Kyrie Irving's Duke Commitment?

I hope so.

I'm no journalist, and this is my first article, but I am so excited that I have to get this out.

This is what I'm thinking:

Alright, so Kyrie Irving has committed to Duke.  He is the second-best PG in the nation (I consider him the best because he is not a one and done guy - he values the education and college experience).  He has a great relationship with two other huge recruits, Harrison Barnes and Austin Rivers, through AAU play.  

Kyrie's commitment could cause a domino effect because 1: Harrison Barnes, a SF rated #1 overall, is visiting this weekend and has said he would love to play with Kyrie, "his little brother," and 2: Austin Rivers, although he already gave UF a verbal, is on the verge of reopening his recruitment for the sole purpose of opening the door for Coach K to step in and work his magic.

Austin is the son of Doc Rivers (Celtics coach) and is, as a junior, considered by some sources to be the fifth-best high school player in the country at SG. Austin also has a great relationship with Kyrie and when asked if Kyrie's decision would influence him, he answered "definitely." 

I AM SO PUMPED FOR THESE NEXT FEW WEEKS AND THE FUTURE OF DUKE BASKETBALL!!!!!
