Urbana junior, Arieal Scott commits to Duke

Illinois comes in second

URBANA -- Junior Arieal Scott made her college decision over the weekend, choosing Duke over schools like Illinois and Missouri.

"I love the coaching staff and I'm really big on relationships and I just feel like Coach P and her staff truly care about me and truly want me to succeed at Duke," Scott said. "Two, they have a phenomenal academic program and one day basketball is going to stop for me and I'm going to need something to fall back on and a Duke degree is pretty tremendous for that. And I just feel the family atmosphere and I feel that was the place to go."

Scott says Illinois came in second in her recruitment. She's the #49 ranked player in the country by Blue Star Basketball and #45 ranked by Prospect Nation.
