Duke's Andre Dawkins may redshirt next season

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Duke released a statement last night regarding guard Andre Dawkins after rumors were running rampant about his future in Durham.

"Andre Dawkins remains a member of the Duke basketball program. There is a possibility of him redshirting next season, but no decision will be made on that until the fall."

Dawkins' father, Andre Sr. told Stephen Wiseman of the Durham Herald-Sun that his son is still dealing with the after-affects of his sister's death. Lacey Dawkins, then 21, was killed in a car crash on her way to see Dawkins play at Duke in 2009.

"He's dealt with a lot. It's been tough. It hasn't been easy at all," Dawkins' father told the Raleigh News & Observer. "With the fast pace of playing high-level basketball you don't really get time to deal with things like that."

Dawkins joined Duke a year earlier than expected in 2009 -- and has been a role player each of his three seasons in Durham. He averaged 8.4 points this past season in 22.4 minutes and shot 39 percent from beyond the arc.
