Winter Park, FL (AP) - The son of Boston Celtics coach Doc
Rivers and one of the nation's most highly recruited players says
he is heading to Duke.
Austin Rivers posted on his Twitter site Thursday: "World i
have decided to go to duke! Let's go blue devils ha'." Rivers, who
later made the announcement on ESPN, chose Duke over Kansas and
North Carolina.
The 6-foot-4 guard of Winter Park, Fla., is considered a
terrific athlete and prolific scorer. He verbally committed to
Florida in 2008 but reopened his search after the Gators struggled
to sustain the success that won them back-to-back national titles.
Rivers led Winter Park High School to the Class 6A championship
last season. He also played for the world champion USA Basketball
18-under team.
