Kelly to Duke; Hamilton to Texas

Two elite prospects came off the board Thursday when Ryan Kelly and Jordan Hamilton announced their destinations.

Kelly is a 6-10 power forward from North Carolina ranked 11th in the Class of 2009. He picked Duke. Hamilton is a 6-7 small forward from California ranked 13th in the Class of 2009. He picked Texas. That means the Blue Devils and Longhorns now both have commitments from multiple top 20 prospects.

Here's an updated look at Scout.com's top 20 from the Class of 2009 ...

Kelly's decision expected Thursday

Ryan Kelly is going national.

Or at least going on national television.

The 6-10 power forward from Raleigh -- ranked as the 11th-best prospect in the Class of 2009 -- is expected to announce his college decision Thursday night on ESPNU, according to Scout.com's Dave Telep. Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Georgetown are the six schools still under consideration for John Wall' AAU teammate. Kelly has visited all six schools in either an official or unofficial capacity, and when he commits that will take six of the top 15 recruits in the Class of 2009 off the board.

Here's Scout.com's Top 15 ...

1. Derrick Favors (uncommitted)

2. John Wall (uncommitted)

3. John Henson (committed to North Carolina)

4. Xavier Henry (uncommitted)

5. Renardo Sidney (uncommitted)

6. DeMarcus Cousins (committed to UAB)

7. Lance Stephenson (uncommitted)

8. Kenny Boynton (uncommitted)

9. Abdul Gaddy (committed to Arizona)
