High Major OT Nearing A Decision

The Blue Devil recruiting class could get a whole lot better if a forthcoming decision goes Duke’s way.

Four star offensive lineman Michal Menet of Reading (Pa.) Exeter will make a decision within the next few weeks and all signs point to this being a battle between Duke and Penn State. Other schools involved include UCLA, Alabama, and Auburn - each of which visited this week.

Meet, considered the second best offensive tackle in the nation according to Scout.com, has more than 30 scholarship offers. From his vantage point as the regional recruiting expert, Scout.com’s Brian Dohn says it’s easy to see why so many programs are after the 6-foot-5, 265 pound lineman.

“Menet is everything you want in an offensive lineman,” says Dohn. “He gets off the ball very quickly, plays with a low pad level, has a nice initial punch, is athletic and can pull, is tenacious and once he engages the defender, he finishes it off nicely. Menet has very good and quick feet, and he has good strength. He plays with leverage and to the whistle.”

Before the decision comes, however, Menet says he’s hoping to make one final visit to Durham.

If he chose Duke, Menet would become the 12th member of the class of 2016, and the sixth player considered a four star prospect in that group.
