We are going to have to make fun of Duke for as long as we can, because they are reloading with top prospects. As usual, a bunch of kids playing in the Mac All-American game are headed for Duke: Nolan Smith, PG, 6’3”, 210, 22.1 points per game; G/F Taylor King, 6’8”, 210, 27.6 ppg, 11.7 rebounds and C/F Kyle Singler, 6’9”, 210, 29.7 ppg, 8.8 rebounds. What happened to O.J. Mayo? No cell phone service in Durham?

North Carolina State landed 6’10”, 240lb J.J. Hickson, 25.9 ppg, 13.8 rebounds (doesn’t Big Sid have enough big guys already?) and Georgia Tech snagged Gani Lawal, 6’9”, 220.

Other schools to land a McDonald’s All-American were Georgetown (2), Syracuse (2), Florida, Ohio State, USC, Villanova, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Arizona, Arizona State, Indiana, UCLA and Memphis.

Who’s missing from the list? UNC.

Virginia Tech also landed two players with McDonald’s credentials. William Jefferson “Double” Wide, 6’0”, 338 lbs, and Kingston “John” Candy, 6’2”, 346 lbs. both of Daytona Beach, Florida. The two had finished tied for first in the much heralded Daytona Beach Biker Week Big Mac Derby by consuming 27 of the triple decker burgers each.

“Well, at least there from Florida,” said Hokie head coach Seth Greenberg, “That’s a step in the right direction.”
