There's a complete list.

I knew Evans would be one and done, but Holiday kind of surprises me....I wonder if that is why Carolina backed off near the end of recruiting....they found out he is possibly a one and done kid.

I really think Teague should go back to Wake for another season....I think he would really benefit from going back to school, or maybe he thinks strike while the iron is hot theory

WRAL out of Raliegh is stating that Henderson is entering the draft..."according to two sources"

...there goes dooks chance at a good run next year...

http://www.wralsportsfan.com/duke/story/4987721/

Again, that is a misleading title...Show me in the article where Gerald Henderson or his people or Duke have said he not just testing the waters or even entering the draft?

I am not saying Gerald may not end up doing this at some point, but this is nothing more than a rumor at this point. To add to that Duke came out with a statement denying this rumor. I would imagine we would hear word from Gerald Henderson's camp after Friday's banquet and obviously before Sunday, that being the deadline.

That's just it though, had the season ended in February the strike while the iron is hot theory would be in play. But because of his big time fade in March, I think his stock is down pretty far.

last I heard it would be a big surprise if Lawson comes back, but it would not be a shocker to see Ellington back for his Senior year

Ellington needs another year. Lawson would be stupid to come back, he's done all he can do to help his draft status. I think the same of Henderson at Duke. He could only hurt his draft status coming back, it's time to move on...

Nah, Gerald needs to work on his outside shot more. In college. :)

Maybe, but he made a pretty good case this year, I'm not really sure he'll further his case next year and that's what's it's really all about...

Srsly though, his on ball defense needs to be tweaked. He's really good at help-side defense.

Can't disagree with that one...

kinda ironic that the two players you guys are talking coming back for their senior year were teammates on the same HS team that both when recruited were more of a lock to leave early.

The only way I see Lawson staying is if Ellington who has become very close to Lawson talks him into staying another year to try and win back to back Championships, but that is an unlikely senario and would be a shocker
