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!!!!!
Thanks for reading.
