2012 Mauldin High OL Jonathan McLaughlin has seen his recruitment take flight in the past month and he recently took a visit to check out an ACC program. Upon his return we caught up with him to get the particulars on his trip.
"The visit to Duke was really good," McLaughlin told Scout.com.
"I talked to coach Jones the whole time about their program, about Duke, and my film. I also met with coach Luke. He was very impressed with my film too."
Another aspect that impressed McLaughlin was the fact that coach Jones took the time to sit down and eat with his family while talking with his parents about Duke's program.
Did the Blue Devils pull the trigger and offer the talented offensive lineman and what did he like best about his trip to Durham?
"They said they will see me in the Spring and make their decision. One thing that I really liked the best about Duke was their facilities. They have a nice building and also their weight room was nice. Then the tunnel they come out of before the game was cool also."
