Duke released a statement on Thursday evening saying that ”Andre Dawkins remains a member of the Duke Basketball program. There is a possibility of him redshirting next season but no decision will be made on that until the fall.”
In other words, nothing has changed. So why release a statement?
Well, it seems that the rumors flying around Duke and their ever-so-trustworthy message boards are that Dawkins has been arrested. Or kicked off the team. Or suspended indefinitely. Or taking a trip to Mars for the next three years.
