Manning HS defensive tackle Phillip Dukes is in no rush to decide where he'll play football at the next level.
By time his recruitment is all said and done, there will be plenty of suitors, and Clemson could be one of those.
With plenty of time left until Signing Day in 2011, he's taking his time in weighing his options.
"I'm going to wait until sometime during my senior year," Dukes said. "I'm going to make all of my official visits and decide after those."
Dukes was on hand in Death Valley to see Clemson beat Florida State 40-24. Though he left at halftime, he enjoyed his trip to Tigertown.
"It was a good game. I really enjoyed the trip. I talked to coach (Chris) Rumph when I was there. He's my main recruiter at Clemson," Dukes said.
It was the first game he's seen at Clemson this season. Dukes told CUTigers that he's also been to games at South Carolina and Georgia this fall.
He's scheduled to visit Columbia for the South Carolina/Florida game and again two weeks later for the Clemson game.
The 6-2, 275 pound class of 2011 prospect plays defensive end at Manning, but is being recruited to play tackle spot at the next level.
"I have offers from Clemson, Maryland, South Carolina, Duke, Stanford and Tennessee," Dukes said. "I don't have any favorites right now."
As Manning heads into the second round of the AA State Playoffs, Dukes said this seasons he's had over 50 tackles, six going for loss, six forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries (one going for a touchdown) and five sacks.
