DUKE COMES IN SECOND ON MENET
The Blue Devils were one of two finalists for 4-star offensive lineman Michael Menet, The tackle was the consensus top prospect in the state of Pennsylvania for 2016, and the 40th-ranked prospect in the nation, according to the 247 Sports Composite. Menet decided to stay in his home state and play for Penn State. He announced the decision on Friday afternoon, May 29. “I just can’t wait to play in front of 107,000 people going nuts,” he told a Penn State recruiting site while explaining his decision.
TRAE YOUNG TO VISIT DUKE
Class of 2017 point guard Trae Young hasn’t gotten a scholarship offer from Duke yet, but the 4-star out of Norman, Oklahoma believes it oculd be a matter of time. The 6-2, 170-pound Young has an offer from Virginia, in the ACC. He’s also been offered by Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, UConn and Oklahoma State. Duke has been recruiting Young heavily, however. He’s confident that the Blue Devils coaches will make him an offer when he visits campus. Currently, he’s planning a visit when he travels east for the Top 100 Camp in June.
NO WORD FROM OBI EBOH
Class of 2016 cornerback Obi Eboh visited Duke over Memorial Day weekend, and the hope was that Blue Devils coaches would be able to lock him up shortly afterward, if not while he was still on campus. But the 6-2, 184-pound 3-star headed back home to Southlake, Texas and has been radio silent ever since. He also has offers from Pitt and Boston College in the ACC, but the biggest threat to Duke may be Baylor. The Bears haven’t extended a scholarship offer yet, which may be a reason behind the delay in Eboh’s decision. Regardless, the more time that passes after the Duke visit, the dimmer the Blue Devils’ chances would appear to be.
