DE Evan Duke Profile
Wake Forest-Rolesville High School (Wake Forest) defensive end Evan Duke arrived to Clemson around 9 a.m. that morning for Junior Day.
While in town, he spoke with offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell, who recruits the central portion of North Carolina.
"He was just telling me I should come to the camp. He told me they want to look at me," Duke recently told CUTigers.com.
He talked further about the trip.
"They gave us the information about Clemson. Then, we took a tour of Clemson. They told us about their traditions," Duke said. "Coach Dabo Swinney talked to us about the traditions and how they run down into Death Valley, rub the rock. That was pretty cool."
From there, the group toured the weight room and Vickery Hall.
"The academics were cool. They're very serious, which is good," he said.
What stood out?
"I like the way the coaching staff operated. They're very personal with the players," Duke said.
Along with Clemson, he's hearing from several ACC schools and a few from the SEC.
"None of them have offered, but they're very interested," Duke said.
This spring, he's also visited Maryland and N.C. State. He's toured Alabama and South Carolina, too.
Duke plans to camp at Clemson, N.C. State and Maryland this summer.
As a junior, he recorded 35 tackles and 14 sacks. He had five sacks as a sophomore.
