    When Duke hosts its “Countdown to Craziness” Friday night and unveils the 2010 national championship banner, an impressive group of recruits will be on hand.

    Austin Rivers, Duke’s newest 2011 commit, is expected to be on campus, along with Oak Hill point guard Quinn Cook and 2012 prospects Tony Parker of Lithonia, Ga., Amile Jefferson of Philadelphia and Rasheed Sulaimon of Houston.

    Quincy Miller, a 6-9 senior forward from Westchester (N.C.) Country Day, will not be there as originally scheduled after the two sides parted ways.

    Miller, the No. 1 power forward in the Class of 2011, is also considering Baylor, Louisville and Oklahoma.

    “Countdown to Craziness was a huge success last year and we are really excited to start this season with another great event,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said, according to GoDuke.com. “Friday is going to be a special night for our players, coaches, fans and everyone involved with Duke basketball. We are looking forward to hitting the floor in Cameron and feeling the building shake in anticipation for the 2010-11 season.”
