- The Education Of Demetrius Walker
This is an excerpt from George Dohrmann’s book Play their Hearts Out, written after eight years of reporting during the grassroots revolution of youth basketball. Great stuff and I’ll be picking it up when it’s released on October 5th.
- Amir Williams off UA radar, too
Williams has had in-home visits with Michigan, DePaul, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Purdue and Florida according to DCD coach Keener.

The most opportune date would probably be October 15th when Dom Pointer and Trey Burke also have official visits planned.
