Duke Commits the Dumbest Recruiting Violation of All-Time

Duke Commits the Dumbest Recruiting Violation of All-Time

We give Duke a lot of undeserved grief around these parts. But they most definitely deserve the hell we're about to give them. P.J. Hairston—a top 20 recruit from the class of 2011—recently announced that he'll be taking his talents to an already-stacked UNC next season over the Blue Devils, who were also in the mix to get the small forward's services. And the reason? Well, it's a real fuckin' doozy.

"The thing about Duke was, every time they sent me a letter, they wouldn't spell my name right," Hairston said recently. "They would have 'T.J. Harrison' or something like that. And I'm like, 'OK. How can I go there? You can't even spell my name right.' It's only two letters and HAIR and STON. I'm trying to figure out how that's so hard." Yeah, now that is what we call a "recruiting violation." Fail! [via The Big Lead]
