Duke's biggest recruit in a few years?
Having lost out on Greg Monroe, the importance of getting Eliot Williams grew, as otherwise Duke was left with unheralded Olek Czyz to comprise its class of 2012...and absent a McDonald's All-American for the first time since the Dude was still shopping for a sturdy boat to cross the Pacific. Fortunately, Williams committed to Duke yesterday, and as Big Daddy reminded, he's a throwback to Ricky Price. Without Monroe, and only Zoubek in the middle, further comparisons to 1997 abound! But at least with Williams, the program doesn't appear headed to '96 depths.
