    Yeah I hate Duke too. If he doesn't pick us I hope he goes to UNC or UCLA. Hopefully not Duke or Kansas.

    Nobody would believe he will pick ISU that isn't local. No reason to, and they don't want to lose credibility by saying ISU instead of Duke or UNC...

    "and from what I hear from sources tells me it’s Duke."

    If HB is supposedly the only one who knows, and none of the coaches know, what source could he possibly have?

    Harrison did walk out of Doug McD's signing talking with the ISU staff coming out very seriously

    Maybe HB already told the Duke people he is coming. If so, there could be good sources inside the Duke program that know what HB is going to do and they may have tipped this guy off in not so many words.

    I hope you are right. How is that the other Duke recruit put on his facebook for everyone to tune in and watch HB committing to Duke? why would he put that on there is there was not a GOOD chance of that happening. Just playin devils advocate here.

    Look, I have no clue where HB's going. But to me that sounds like last-minute politicking, especially when HB has clearly said that nobody but him and his mom know. I'd rather take him at his word than the word of some long-distance friend that is likely begging for the guy who is arguably the best basketball player in America to come play with him for a year or two.

    Because he is an 18 year old kid that thinks like the rest of the world, that ISU is not relevant. Doug Mcdermoot said he did not kno wbut had a good feeling that ISU may get it's name called on the radio Wednesday night, if anything I bet Doug knows more than Irving does.

    He's got another good friend who committed to UNI and happens to be the son of ISU's coach who said in a radio interview that things looked really good for ISU. I'm sorry, but if Doug McD doesn't know, then Kyrie Irving doesn't know.

    Barnes and Irving are VERY close so it wouldn't surprise me at all if he knows where Barnes is going. Now that doesn't mean it's going to be Duke though.

    Personally, I think Duke was the favorite for a long time and then HB started to waver on them a bit, but when push comes to shove I think he will go with his first instinct and select Duke. Hope I'm wrong though!

    HB has obviously been hell-bent on not letting anyone know. If anything was going to "leak", it was going to come out of the Ames/ISU camp. It hasn't.

    If he is going to Duke and they do know, you think Coach K is stupid enough to tell a new recruit with a Twitter account? Whoever is the front runner (ISU, Duke, NC, whoever) either a.) truly doesn't know or b.) has been absolutely silent at HB's request.

    If I were Duke or Irving, I'd be quiet. That would be an absolute betrayal of trust. Not a good idea before that ink is dry on the LOI.

    Maybe he is just a friend of Barnes' and he wants to support him with the post. He may not know anything, but is hopeful for Duke. Could just be supporting a friend in his big moment.
