The cousin of former Duquesne guard Tyson Acuff, Darius officially exploded onto the scene this past weekend — earning offers from Michigan, Pitt, Kentucky, and Nebraska in the past few days. In February, the Cass Tech product took home the Mr. PSL award for top player in his Detroit-based high school league — the same league that former Pitt guard Greg Elliott competed in years ago.
