Recruiting notes from the weekend

Cameron Clark committing to Oklahoma wasn't the only recruiting development from this weekend.

Here are some others:

Rivers visits Duke: Class of 2011 star Austin Rivers visited Duke despite supposedly being committed to Florida. As Bruce Weber can attest -- you haven't forgotten the Eric Gordon recruitment, have you? -- there is no way to interpret this as a good thing for the Gators. Rivers taking that visit makes him by definition no longer genuinely committed to Florida, and it's only a matter of time before he acknowledges as much publicly. Scout.com ranks Rivers as the No. 4 prospect in the Class of 2011. He is the son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers

Wroten tears ACL: While Rivers was touring Cameron Indoor Stadium, fellow Class of 2011 star Tony Wroten Jr. was tearing his ACL in a football game, according to the Seattle Times . The paper reported that Wroten will have surgery this week and need seven-to-nine months of rehab, meaning he's done with football and basketball for the year. Scout.com ranks Wroten as the No. 8 prospect in the Class of 2011.

Quick hitters: Stacey Poole, a 6-foot-5 wing from Florida, told Scout.com that he'll likely pick between Kentucky and South Carolina by the end of the week. Poole is ranked 58th in the Class of 2010. ... Kyrie Irving, ranked fifth in the Class of 2010, eliminated Indiana from his list of possible destinations. The New Jersey point guard is still considering Duke, Kentucky, Georgia Tech and Texas A&M. ... One of the nation's top junior college prospects, J.P. Olukemi, committed to Oklahoma state. He's the fourth OSU commitment for the Class of 2010.

Gilchrist is the consensus best of 2011

Justin Young of the National Hoops Report updated his Class of 2011 rankings this week.

No surprise, Michael Gilchrist is No. 1.

Here's the top 10:

1. Michael Gilchrist
2. Marquise Teague
3. Rakeem Christmas
4. James McAdoo
5. Anthony Wroten
6. Quincy Miller
7. LeBryan Nash
8. Austin Rivers (committed to Florida )
9. Bradley Beal
10. Wayne Blackshear

Understand, Justin sees these guys way more than I see them, so I'm in no position to argue. But I will tell you that I'm skeptical of Wroten, if only because I've never personally seen him be great. I know he's really good, and his natural gifts are obvious. But I must've watched Wroten play three or four times this summer, and I never once came away impressed the way I was consistently impressed by Gilchrist, Teague, Christmas, Rivers and Beal.

What does that mean?

Probably nothing.

But the next time I see Wroten make a shot, it'll be the first.
