In-State WR Has Duke's Attention

Jordan Fieulleteau (6'3, 200, 4.5) has caught the attention of the Blue Devil coaching staff early on.

Wakefield High School in Raleigh, North Carolina has become a regular recruiting stop for college coaches in the southeast.

While many of those coaches are focusing their attention on 2013 quarterback Connor Mitch, there is another junior prospect at Wakefield beginning to pick up some steam in recruiting as well: wide receiver Jordan Fieulleteau.

Fieulleteau absolutely torched opposing secondaries as a junior, finishing the year with 86 catches for 1,200 yards and an amazing 24 touchdowns. He credits his height and jumping ability for his impressive statistics.

"I always go up and get the ball," Fieulleteau said. "My size and athletic ability allow me to make big plays when it counts."

When Fieulleteau wasn't grabbing touchdown passes this season, he was able to take unofficial visits to many of the in-state schools, including a trip to Duke for the Virginia Tech game.

"It was pretty good. The coaches are nice and welcoming. It was a good game. They had a good environment and I like the campus. I like their facilities and stuff like that."

Being used to playing in a pass-heavy offense, Fieulleteau says that the Blue Devils spread offense is something that works in their favor.

"They throw the ball a lot and that's a good thing. Coach (David) Cutcliffe has worked with guys like Peyton Manning, so he's always got the quarterback ready. He prepares you well for the next level."

Fieulleteau currently only holds a scholarship offer from UNC, but he is certain to have more offers coming his way after his phenomenal junior campaign.

He says that he is still wide open in his recruitment and that no school has begun to separate themselves from the pack.

Fieulleteau will begin to narrow down his list of potential suitors soon, however, as he does not plan on drawing out his recruiting process for long.

"I'm probably going to commit either before my senior season or early in the season because I am graduating high school early."
