AMES, IOWA - On Tuesday, top basketball prospect Harrison Barnes, received a visit from both Duke Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina Coach Roy Williams. The 6-8 senior from Ames, Iowa spent 3 hours with Coach K, then entertained Williams for another 90 minutes.
Although meeting with Coach K was scheduled beforehand, the meeting with coach Williams was more last minute. Barnes had met with coach Williams once before at his home. Coach Williams then started showing up at the star basketball player's home games.
"I was in the neighborhood," Williams confessed when asked of his visit.
Always playing the nice guy, Coach K explained, "I'm not going to get in the way of them communicating. But we all know he's mine."
Barnes later admitted that he had come to expect the unexpected throughout the recruiting process. He then declared for the NBA draft.
