LOS ANGELES – As legendary scout Tom Konchalski said, “there’s no one in high school basketball who has a better skill set, regardless of position.”
Austin Rivers has been Duke’s top target in 2010 for quite some time. His games have been the best attended and some of the more entertaining ones of this AAU season. The Winter Park, FL native has recently come up with a tentative list of schools, which he would like to visit in the near future. He has said that he will decide publicly on his future college program by this August. At this weekend’s Nike EYBL leg in Los Angeles, Rivers injured his ankle and head in separate incidents, resulting in missing the last three games of this tournament. From the training table, Austin Rivers spoke with Blue Devil Nation about a variety of topics, including his injuries, his goals for the upcoming season, how he deals with the public nature of his father’s occupation, and why he will end his recruitment by August.
First of all, let’s start with the injury. What happened and how serious was it?
Oh, well, I sprained it pretty bad, but I should be all right.
Is this a long-term injury? I remember you hurt it badly at the HoopHall.
Oh, no, it just hurts a lot now, but I should be back. Hopefully, I can go by this evening, but I doubt it.
