Devils Drop In On Ohio Lineman

Mike Madsen was able to be introduced to the Duke coaching staff last week.

Mike Madsen, a 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle from Cardinal Mooney High in Youngstown, Ohio is a prospect who has quietly caught the attention of college programs throughout the country.

"I have offers from Miami (OH) and Kent State," Madsen reported. "Northwestern, Illinois, Duke, Navy, Air Force, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Cincinnati are also showing me a lot of interest.

"Duke, Miami (OH), and Cincinnati were the first schools to contact me last week. I think it shows that they are the programs that have a high interest in me. I would not mind staying closer to home, but I would not mind going away for college.

"I took unofficial visits to Miami and Kent State. At Miami I really liked the campus and the football facilities and weight room were unreal. It was a really nice visit."

Madsen garnered All-Conference honors after having a successful junior campaign.
