In-state lineman talks Duke

One of the earliest in-state prospects to appear on the 2014 Duke recruiting board is Southern Nash High standout Corey Shulz. During the season the 6'4 TE/DE visited Durham and has Duke high on his list.

"Right now I'm hearing from Duke, East Carolina, Wake Forest, and NC State," said Bailey (N.C.) Southern Nash standout Corey Shulz. "None of them have offered me at this time."

Schulz, a 6-foot-4, 245 pound prospect who runs the 40 in just under five seconds, has played both tight end and along the defensive line early in his career at Southern Nash. At the next level he is being recruited on both sides of the ball. Duke appears to favor him on the interior of the defensive line.

"I visited Duke this season for their game against North Carolina, and was very impressed with the entire organization. the coaching staff seems very dedicated, and I would love to be part of the program's continued growth. Coach Petri has continued to tell me to work hard and to keep my grades up."

Growing up in North Carolina, Schulz admits the perception of Duke football wasn't always positive, but that's changing based on his trips to Durham.

"I've visited Duke twice and they are definitely changing things. Everything there is very beautiful and organized. [At the UNC game] everything had a ton of energy and the fan involvement was great. When I went into the locker room the players were very friendly and informative, and on the field everything was so focused and confident."

Schulz adds that he plans to camp this summer and hopes to earn his first offers from that experience.
