Donovan Tests The NABC

Although it's voluntary, the NABC strongly discourages taking commitments from junior high players.  Not everyone is listening, and most particularly, not Billy Donovan, who has accepted a commitment from Austin Rivers, son of Doc Rivers, coach of the Celtics.  The younger Rivers is a ninth grader.

Donovan doesn't particularly appreciate the NABC's position on this.  He's the first coach to accept a commitment from a player this young since the coaches took a position.
