Thompson Offered By Duke And UNC?

According to, both
Duke and UNC have offered Michael Thompson
, the Illinois big man. Since Michael's brother is the source it seems reliable. This is
interesting because Duke also of course offered JJ Redick, the first time we can
remember Duke offering a junior, and if it happens twice it would suggest a
change in philosophy. Under those circumstances, it's hard to imagine them
not offering Shavlik Randolph as well (not to say that they have or that Duke is
ready), and Thompson, presumably, is being recruited for center where Randolph would be recruited to play forward.
