The Duke Chronicle has a rundown on Duke’s current recruiting situation and prospects, focusing on Dariq Whitehead,Dereck Liveley, Mark Mitchell, Kyle Filipowski, JJ Starling and Anthony Black.

Whitehead, a 6-6 forward playing at Montverde, is going to announce August 1st and has described himself as a major Duke fan growing up.

Liveley is a 7-1 big from Cam Reddish’s high school who is apparently not close to a decision but all the big programs are after him.

Mitchell, a 6-8 Kansan, is naturally linked to the Jayhawks but also has looked into several other schools, including Duke.

Filipowski has gotten a lot of Duke-centric buzz but nothing concrete yet obviously.

Starling is a 6-0 point guard from Indiana, and if we remember correctly, Duke hasn’t gotten a player from that state since Josh McRoberts and not many before that.

Finally, Anthony Black has come on more recently. A multi-sport star, his father Terry played at Baylor.
