Dukes Digs Duke

Duke is high on wide receiver Jaleel Dukes' list. See why the Blue Devils stole the Virginia native's heart inside...

"I am really liking Duke, and I am keeping in touch with them," said Jaleel Dukes, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver from Hylton High (Woodbridge, Va.). Dukes kicked off his 2012 recruiting campaign with a visit to the Blue Devils for Junior Day.

"I really enjoyed it. They made a point saying, making a college choice is a 45-50 year choice. I really liked that and they are like a family, so that's a plus."

Duke has yet to verbally offer the wide receiver, but he believes they will by the summer.

"I do think they will offer me, I just need to go to the camp, and I am going."

Dukes who has an impressive vertical jump of "26.50," has caught the attention of Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Ohio State, Old Dominion, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

"Going up for the ball, I can just block other people off."

In only nine games for Hylton High, Dukes showed his versatility, averaging 12.5 yards per reception and eleven tackles.
