Duke Gets Guard

Duke landed top prep shooting guard John Scheyer yesterday. Scheyer was named first-team all-state in Illinois this year after leading his team to the state title as a junior.
The really interesting side to this story is that Scheyer was heavily recruited by in-state power Illinois. Scheyer’s high school coach? A certain Dave Weber, brother of Bruce Weber, the head coach at Illinois.
Ouch.
When you can’t land in-state players off of your brother’s team, that doesn’t say good things. Maybe it’s more accurate to say that it says bad things about brother Dave. Either way, it’s tough for the Illini.
As you might expect the Duke Basketball Report has plenty more.
Update: I was a moron and wrote “Dick” Weber instead of Bruce Weber. Pretty sad when I confuse a college basketball coach with a bowler.
