Duke gets a recruit in...a year early???

21 posts in this topic

Andre Dawkins (a reallly talented SG prospect) was slated to go to Duke in 2010. He was actually going to reclassify and go to Hargrave Military Academy this year. However, it appears that somehow he has managed to, instead of reclassify, he will graduate EARLY of all things. Congrats to the kid but this really just pours salt on the wound especially with some news coming out surrounding Lorenzo Brown that he didn't graduate because of all things....he missed too many days of school.

Where the hell is his HS coach/support system on that??? Sorry...just a little frustrated right now.

Personally, I believe this shows the NCAA's bias toward all of their "big money" schools.

Looks like Dawkins HS and coach got behind him amd ensured he graduated

Whereas Brown HS and coach did not follow up with him after the season .

So he will play this year for Duke? If so that is great news for Duke. Kind of hurting at guard right now.

Oh its a genius move by Coach K to dig up the fact that this kid can play this year. IMO he could use another year on the AAU circuit to completely come into his own but when you are getting killed on the roster rotation like Duke is you kinda have a reason to speed things up...

Kind of hurting at guard, Don't you mean really hurting at every spot. The only championships Rat face krezewsky is winning are with the olympic team. He is slowly running Dook into the ground by not going after the one and done players. That is the only shot he stands to compete with Roy and the boys.

Along with ignorance, throw in a tiny...umm large sprinkle of homer-ism as well.

Good news for Duke, we were really hurting at guard. Hurting at every spot? With the exception of Henderson and Paulus and Williams eveyone is coming back. Add to that 2 big men, which is something we haven't had in ages (talented ones anyway).

      Some people think Bo is a pretty fair comparison.

      Didn't Lennie clock a faster top speed than Ted Ginn this year?

    • It's amazing to me that this forum has always been gloves off, but ever since November, sensitivity, not just here but EVERYWHERE, is at an all-time high.  Everyone wants to be mad, everyone wants to be outraged, and everyone is being victimized. TBH, when you have a leader that perpetuates constant chaos and employs vitriol as his only means of communication, don't be surprised when the citizenry adopts that same style of hysteria as a way of life. It's just where we are.  I don't approve of anyone wishing harm on others, nor do I think anything gets solved with name-calling or aggressive finger pointing, but those things have always happened, especially in the TB.  I think the difference is everything is so emotionally-charged both in sending and receiving messages.  IMO, it started with politics and has bled over into everything else...  same crap keeps happening in the main forum - people disagree, people don't like that others disagree with them and beg for them to be silenced or attacked.   Oh well, welcome to 2017.
