Hairston, Thornton Commit to Duke

Class of 2010 recruits Josh Hairston and Tyler Thornton visited Duke over the weekend, and both left having committed to Mike Krzyzewski and his program. Hairston, a four-star and's 26th-best player in his class, is a 6-foot-8, 195-pound power forward. His D.C. Assault teammate Thornton, another four-star and the 49th-best 2010 prospect, is a 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard.

Hairston and Thornton join five-star shooting guard Andre Dawkins in the Blue Devils' Class of 2010. Duke's lone 2009 commit is Mason Plumlee, and the Blue Devils are actively chasing five-stars Kenny Boynton and Ryan Kelly. Five-star 2010 point guard Brandon Knight, a summer teammate of Boynton, also has Duke high on his list.
