I’m not totally surprised the top basketball recruit picked a ‘basketball school’. I don’t even keep up much with basketball and I could see this guy had Duke written all over him from the start.

Especially at the blue bloods right? Because only so many can be drafted each year he could end up being a multiple year player there.

I'll cut to the chase. Simmons is from Australia. Played high school ball in Florida.

So there's no parallel to high-profile recruit choosing to stay in-state.

This is a true story and if wasn't for a million bs fouls they converted into like 30 free throw points we actually crushed them on the court of REAL live play.

When's the last time a top 5 recruit hung around? The top 5 players from each of the past 2 classes were all one-and-done.

Article on TaterNet quotes Williamson’s step-father saying Clemson “lost a mile and a half lead” somewhere along the way.

My point wasn't just Alabama though. My point was that we don't keep all the football talent instate and that is even with Clemson making the CFP the past 3 seasons.

If they can't keep all the instate talent in state, then why should 2 average basketball programs be able to when there are so many blue blood basketball teams around us?

Nothing embarrassing about it..... it just means we have a ways to go.

Should UGA football be embarrassed that USC gets so many solid players from the ATL area? I don't think so.

You actually can make the argument that Coach K might retire in the next year or so and Brownell might be gone.

Clemson's Donte Grantham went down with a knee injury in their win over Notre Dame today before he announced his decision.

Would make sense that they are trying to stack up for a final run or 2 for the lil leprechaun

I'm in the minority but I like Duke. Have since the mid 80s.

And him going there is far better than Clemson. Duke is a star school and he'll fit in. At Clemson he would have put them on the map. At Duke he's another star player in a long list.
