KU withdraws Poicus' scholarship offer

Phog.net is reporting that KU has withdrawn its scholarship offer to Martynas Pocius. Additionally, The Devils' Den is reporting that Pocius will announce that he will become a Duke Blue Devil this afternoon:

Martynas Pocius, as of 1:40 PM EST had not officially called head coach Mike Krzyzewski to inform him of the news officially, but is expected to do so soon.Sources close to the situation confirm that the Blue Devils, on the heals of a strong official visit this weekend, have indeed won the services of one of the best shooters in the class of 2005.

While there is and likely will continue to be speculation that KU had some specific reason for withdrawing its offer, I suspect that it is merely a face-saving maneuver on the part of the Jayhawks. This way, it doesn't look like we lost a recruit to Duke.

Congratulations to the Blue Devils and best of luck to Young Pocius.
