Duke Strong For Ohio TE

For years Cincinnati's Moeller High School has been among the nation's best high school programs. Boasting seven state titles along with five national titles, there has been no shortage of high major talent produced. The Blue Devils have begun looking around Moeller recently, and have made a big impression on one of the key contributors.

"Duke seems like they are really interested in me, and I guess you could say they are on the top of my list," says 6-foot-3, 220 pound Kevin Deters. "I'm also getting interest from Cincinnati, Ohio, Boston College, Miami of Ohio, and a few others."

And what has pushed the Blue Devils to the top of Kevin's list so early in the process?

"The chance to play in a power conference like the ACC while getting a Duke education is really appealing. Plus, I'd have a chance to compete for a spot early in my career. Duke is also not a huge school, and it's in a really nice part of the country."

With plans to major in the business field, Deters adds that whatever school he ends up signing with will have to have a solid academic reputation.

Deters spent last season as a back up, and played in just one game. This season he projects as the starting tight end and is looking to make an impact.

"I think my best asset is my ability to get out and catch passes, but last season my role was to block for the running game on the line. This year I think I'll have a chance to showcase more of my abilities."

Though he has yet to check the various schedules for summer camps, Deters says he expects to attend the Blue Devils' camp during the summer.
