Mallard Creek (Charlotte, N.C.) junior running back Jela Duncan won't be attending this weekend's junior day event at Clemson.

Clemson special teams coordinator Danny Pearman, who runs the point on the recruitment of Duncan, spoke with the 2012 prospect last Friday.

"It was about getting me to come down there for their spring game, because they've run out of tickets for junior day," Duncan told CUTigers. "I'm going to try to get down there for that."

He recently visited Virginia for the Cavaliers' junior day and has yet to schedule visits to any other schools this spring.

A trip to Clemson for the spring game would be his first visit to Tigertown.

"I know that it's a good atmosphere up there. My friend, Jamel Harbison, he's been up there. He tells me a lot about it," Duncan said.

Duke is the only school that's offered, but he's receiving interest from Clemson, Virginia, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Marshall.

As a junior, Duncan rushed for 1,208 yards and 15 touchdowns on 95 carries, despite missing the first three games of the season with an injury.
