On 5/18/05, Episcopal Academy junior Gerald Henderson
made an oral commitment
to attend Duke in Sept. 2006. On 5/24, teammate Wayne Ellington followed with an oral
commitment to North Carolina. Here are some photos . . . (Gerald's first; Wayne's below).
Gerald's dad, Gerald, a former NBA player, speaks with the media before the press conference.

Gerald is now wearing a Duke hat and his sister, Jade, a student
at runner-up Villanova, is thinking, "Why has he made things so
difficult for me?" (smile)

Wayne bites his lip as Gerald says Duke is going to squash UNC (smile).
Wayne is still amazed at the doo-doo Gerald is talking (just kidding).
