Kite talks official visit

Jake Kite (6'1, 185, S) visited Duke as part of the big recruiting weekend in early December

Having already been to Duke numerous times this Fall, Roanoke area safety commit Jake Kite knew what to look for on his official visit to Durham. After returning home, Kite sat down with TDD to discuss the visit and his recruitment.

"As with every time I visit Duke, I was more than impressed with everything I saw," said Jake Kite. "My official visit was just more of the same. There wasn't too much new for me to see, but I was still really impressed with everything."

While the football meetings were a continuation of the handful of visits he made throughout the Fall, Kite said he had a chance to really get an understanding of the academic side of things while on the official visit.

"We took a really close look at the academic side of things and learned about the support system and the expectations. That was pretty eye-opening and exciting as well. The value of a Duke education is second to none."

And then there was the final piece of the puzzle for a successful visit.

"Just the chance to get to know the other commits and their families was great. Duke football really is a big family."

Kite, who played safety, kick returner, and receiver for Roanoke (Va.) Hidden Valley High, will play safety at Duke. He confirms his plans to sign on National Signing Day.
