2003 Target: Luol Deng

Luol Deng, a highly skilled 6-8, 217 pound small forward from Blair Academy in Blairstown, N.J., may play in a tournament in Connecticut this weekend, according to his AAU coach Rich Leary.
"Luol could also take a visit to Duke," Leary told us via a telephone interview. "Right now we're not sure if we will play in the tournament. So Luol could or may not make the visit to Duke this weekend."
Deng already has had in school visits with Duke and Virginia. "The in school visits are a chance for the coaches to get to know the players more," said Blair Academy head coach Joe Mantegna in an interview this week. "They have already seen Luol play enough to know what he can do on the court."
Besides Duke and Virginia, Deng will have in school visits with Missouri, Texas, George Washington, and Florida. Deng has also not ruled out Maryland. North Carolina, Seton Hall, and Villanova are not part of the recruiting process anymore, according to Mantegna. "He won't end up in the Big East now," Mantegna said.
Deng previously said he has a sister who attends Maryland and cited Karl Hobbs as a big factor for his affinity with George Washington. Deng's older brother, Ajou Ajou, played at UConn where Hobbs was an assistant coach. He has since transferred to Fairfield.
