Lately Duke and Kentucky have gone head to head for more recruits than Duke and UNC, but the Tar Heels have been caught up in their massive series of scandals and it clearly affected recruiting.

That’s over now though, so expect recruiting - and competition - to pick back up.

Duke and UNC are competing for at least five guys - Vernon Carey, Cole Anthony, Matthew Hurt, Armando Bacot and, closer to home, Wendell Moore.

It’s all rumors until we hear more so don’t put too much stock in anything you read here. But you’re going to read it. Oh yes you will.
