Does Calipari's move put Wall on fence again?

Well, the John Wall sweepstakes just took a turn. John Calipari's leaving Memphis, the front-runner for Wall's considerable services, for Kentucky, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

ESPN says the deal is worth $35 million over eight years.

Wall, the No. 1-rated guard prospect in the class of 2009, said Monday Memphis was his leader but he was waiting for Calipari's decision. The Raleigh Word of God senior said his final list is Memphis, Duke, N.C. State, Baylor and Kansas.

I hear Seth Curry is reconsidering Duke now that Calipari is going to UK.

As a Wolfpack fan I can hope, but I'm not very optimistic about our chances of landing Wall.

One year at Duke then to the pro's. After that year, Duke will have Curry running the point. Looking good to be a Duke fan

I really think Duke will take Wall and Xavier Henry from Memphis now that Cal is gone. UK has 0 scholarship offers left to give out.

Welcome to Duke, Wall. And welcome back, Gerald.

If you Duke fans are looking forward to Curry running the point in two years you are in trouble (AGAIN).

Seth is no more of a point guard than his older brother. Why do you think Davidson didn't make the NCAA tourney this year?

Corey, heralded PG recruit Tyler Thornton should be running the point for Duke in '10...unless Wall decides to be a 2-and-done.
