News & Notes – Tyler Adams, Austin Rivers, Justin Anderson

The AAU basketball season is underway and this typically leads to a pickup in recruiting information.  Here are a few newsworthy items from this weekends Boo Williams Invitational.

Justin Anderson – When asked about his dream school Anderson replied “Duke”.  Anderson is a highly ranked SF from the class of 2012.  The Duke staff will be checking in on him this summer.

Tyler Adams – Adams has been openly talking about his feelings for Duke at Boo Williams and everything he says has been very positive.  We expect Tyler to visit Duke later this spring (likely in June).  There is a very strong chance that Adams commits either during or in the weeks following the visit.

Austin Rivers – Rivers has also spoken very highly of Duke while at the Boo Williams tourney.  He mentioned to BDI that he called the Duke coaching staff both before and after Duke’s national championship game on Monday.  Rivers is still not saying what his official timeframe is for a decision, but there are strong rumors going around at Boo Williams that it will occur in late summer or early fall.

Stay tuned to BDI for more Duke recruiting news.
