5-star PG Trevon Duval commits to Duke
Evan Daniels‏Verified account @EvanDaniels 2h2 hours ago
Duke now has the No. 2 recruiting class in 2017 with the addition of Trevon Duval. They have two of the top 7 players & 3 of the top 19.

This makes the fourth straight year that Duke & Kentucky have been No. 1 & No. 2 in some order in Scout's recruiting class rankings.

At least the saga is over now. Now if only Iggy would reclassify to '17.

Wow, Mizzou with a pretty blatant shot at us in their Tilmon commitment graphic. State of Illinois and Missouri with a tiger image overlayed. Game on Miznoz.

Jeremiah Tilmon is in good hands. There can't be a better role model than Cuonzo Martin. @KSDKSports @MizzouHoops

I think this is as good a year as any to finally make it to my first Braggin Rights game.

Just spoke to 2019 Mizzou target @EasyE2432 while waiting to get seated for my grad dinner. He said he plans to visit Mizzou next weekend.


EJ Liddell visiting Miznoz next weekend.

He definitely needs a role model, but is Cuonzo really the best possible role model? We'll see.

Good luck to Tilmon.

Hopefully, our coaches land someone that makes us forget all about Tilmon. You can role model all you want; we'll see how things pan out down there.

Not that Underwood needs a little extra fire in his belly, but the way this went down sets-up for maximum belly fire in the bragging rights game. Looking so forward to it!

So now that it's all over.

What was the reason for the the re-commitment on social media and then two days later, he asked for his LOI? What happened in those two days?

I'm guessing he meant to delete that tweet and accidentally re-tweeted it instead.

Good luck to JT at Miznoz. Hopefully they have someone that will help him develop as a big man and get to the next level. Not sure that guy is Cuonzo Martin, but I hope he does well... save for the Braggin' Rights game... LOL

On to the next recruit!

I think we need to worry more about filling out our roster than Missouri right now. There was a gap in talent when Porter committed, now there is a real talent gap with Tilmon and if the younger Porter reclassifies...I will probably not watch the game this year. Now, when all three go pro after next year(Tilmon because I think it's in his dad's mind that he's one and done), then we'll be back to square one.

I'm more interested in these four remaining scholarships and how we're going to compete in the paint than Missouri right now. This Tilmon thing was a done deal a month and a half ago. He, smartly, let the air clear, the emotions clear...then committed. Like one poster said, meh.

If he would of checked out of his NLI when the coaching change took place, my response would of been: "Good luck I wish you well." Since he played the Illini while likely having 2nd party contact with Missouri and Martin, I can't say that anymore. All I can say now is: "Live with your decision." I think he actually made the right choice, because Martin is a sleazy character and Tillman will be able to expand his unethical conduct under Martin's mentorship. In closing, I'd just like to say, I'm glad the Illini did not attempt to hire Martin.

The replies to that would be pretty hideous. Hope for his sake and Illini reputation he doesn't tweet anything.
