Ohio RB Grabs A Late Duke Offer

James Ford Rhodes HS (OH) senior Lakeith Walls has racked up almost a dozen offers. Check out which school is now coming after the running back.

6-foot-4, 200 pound senior Lakeith Walls has been hearing from schools from all over the country. The talented running back picked up his 11th offer, this one coming from the ACC.

"Duke offered me," said Walls. "I had actually been talking to them for a while. In fact, they were actually my first interested school, but the offer was a surprise because it came in the mail."

So, how does the running back feel about the Blue Devils?

"I would say I have around a medium interest in them right now. I'm learning more about the program right now. I've just learned some basic background information about the team and the players. Also, the type of grades that I would have to pull to be accepted. A visit to Duke could be a possibility."

Walls also holds offers from Akron, Eastern Michigan, Louisville, Miami (Oh), North Carolina State, Northwestern, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Toledo.

When it comes to picking choosing which school that will be, Walls doesn't want to rush his commitment.

"I don't have a set time. When I'm ready to commit, the most important factors will be how my family feels about the school, how far it is away from home and then how I like the coaches. I want the school to be far enough away so that I'm not right at home, but not so far that it's impossible for me to get home on breaks."
