Austin Rivers, Doc Rivers' son, commits to Duke
Austin Rivers, a shooting guard who is the top-ranked player in the 2011 recruiting class as well as the son of Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers, has committed to Duke.
"He picked Duke because of [Mike Krzyzewski] and his staff," David Bailey, his coach at Winter Park, Fla., High School told ESPN. "There is a ton of tradition at Duke, and it was the best place for him from a basketball and academic standpoint."
Rivers earlier had committed to Florida, then changed his mind. Bailey said he told the other two coaches of his top choices, Kansas' Bill Self and North Carolina's Roy Williams, on Thursday morning.
