Duke Makes Formal Offer To John Wall

For months, Duke had been in the John Wall sweepstakes, even though Mike Krzyzewski had never formally offered the nation's top-ranked point guard from Raleigh.

That changed this weekend, as Krzyzewski offered Wall when he was on campus for an official visit, Wall confirmed to Sunday.

Wall came to campus and toured the Gothic Wonderland and the team's practice facility Sunday night, while Seth Curry, who committed to Duke Sunday, arrived at around 1:30 p.m., his father, Dell Curry, told The Chronicle. Wall told that Krzyzewski told him Duke would consider playing a more up-tempo style with Wall.

"Duke has a chance for a player like me to come in and basically have the ball in my hands," he said. "They are going to have a lot of guys who can score and who would thrive playing that kind of style. They just need the point guard."

If Wall were to sign with Duke, he would join Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly in the Class of 2010. The Blue Devils already boast the No. 9 class in the country with their two commits from five-stars, and if they could add Wall, they might very well be able to earn the distinction of the country's best recruiting class.
