Julius Randle come on down!!!
Holy crap, the MSU guys had a Jabari Parker announcement thread that has 1800 comments. They must be pissed!
According to all the Chicago reporters on Twitter.

No Dakari, No Jabari, better put the full press on Julius!
"I hope he never plays a single game in college. Is polio still a thing?"
one MSU fan said that
MSU fans suck.
Jabari seems like the nicest kid ever.
""I'm humble" blah blah blah
No kid, what you are is a front-runner. World's full of them."
Numerous posts saying "fuck!"
"I'm going to go masturbate furiously"
"Now the world ending tomorrow doesn't seem so bad."
-Another MSU Fan
Billy D pulled his offer...only explanation imo
I can understand why MSU fans are pissed. They were thought to be the favorite for a while. It might have been like if Grier picked UNC.
Cnnsi posted an inside exclusive look on his recruitment ....doook won this by a mile but appears UF was second....another 10yrs of success for BD and some better fan support and we beat dook on a future pros priority list in every category but academics in future
Give Jabari credit. He's a smart kid who made a very deliberate decision. You can't criticize a kid for choosing Duke. It's a great program with top academics and a legend for a coach. He followed his heart on this one.
We should all root for good kids and good people to do well, and he certainly fits that mold.
If you haven't seen, SI breaks down his recruitment, including the final days.

Billy the Kid, age 48,
5 SEC Championships,
2 National Championships...
Let's see. He did all kinds of research on guys that have recently gone into the NBA at his position. Who exactly has Duke and Coach K produced lately along the frontline that has done anything in the NBA? Singler? Plumlee #1? Loul Deng? Shelden Williams? Oh yeah, I forgot about the greatest recruit of all-time, Shavlik Randolph. Wow..what a pedigree.

I guess it depends on what lately is, but since Coach K is still the coach he's is probably considering his entire track record at Duke. Which would include guys like Shane Battier, Carlos Boozer, Elton Brand, Luol Deng, Michael Dunleavy, Gerald Henderson, Dahntay Jones, Grant Hill, Cory Maggette, Josh McRoberts, Kyle Singler, and Shelden Williams. These are the front line players I thought of off the top of my head. Jones and Henderson are guards in the league but played the 3 at Duke if you had to give them a position.
Probably the biggest misconception about Duke is that they don't produce NBA players.
As of Janurary 2012 Duke had more NBA players than any other college basketball team with 17. See link below.
For the 2011-2012 season they also made more money than alumni from any other university. See link below.
So yeah Coach K and Duke do have quite the pedigree.
Eye on College Basketball - Which program boasts most NBA players?
Guess this one goes down like every other big recruit we miss out on... Duke paid him lol. JK...
