It's Official: Luol Deng is a Blue Devil

It

It's official now.  Today at a noon press conference for the benefit of the Blair faculty and staff, Luol Deng and Charlie Villanueva made their collegiate choices public.  The pair will hold a joint press conference at 3 PM EST.

Deng reportedly said that the way in which he seemed to fit in with the famed 'Super Six' freshman class was the main factor in his decision to attend Duke over other schools such as Missouri, Virginia, and Indiana.  Deng reportedly informed the Duke coaching staff of his decision around midnight on Sunday.  He apparently called the other coaches early Monday morning.

The 6-foot-8 combo forward, who's rated as the nation's top college bound senior, and his teammate will speak with the media at 3:00 PM.

TDD will have full coverage of the 3:00 PM press conference
