Devils Jump In With Banks

Last weekend, Adam Banks felt confident leaving the Duke one-day camp and the defensive end from A.C. Reynolds High in Asheville, N.C. earned his first scholarship offer shortly after returning from his day in Durham.

"I got a scholarship from Duke. They want me to plan a little rush backer or Sam 'backer, somewhere in there," said the 6-foot-5, 223-pounder who added that he is not ready commit right now. "I am still going through the camps pretty much. I plan to make a decision in August before football starts. I just want to get it out of the way and not have to worry about it."

More schools coming through with an offer certainly would give Banks more of an option and he feels that could happen soon.

"At State, my recruiting coach said that I was looking pretty good for an offer. North Carolina and Wake seem very close. They pretty much are saying they need to figure out the numbers on it and they will be in touch. At Carolina I would stay at defensive end and at Wake I would be a linebacker."

Banks is not set on a position in college, though the potential to play linebacker certainly excites him. However, that will not have the biggest impact on his choice in schools.

"First, there is education and that is why Duke is so attractive. Then, I want to be in North Carolina and from there I am just going to have to look into everything and pretty much decide what I want to do."

Banks still has upcoming camp dates set with Georgia, Georgia Tech, and NC State.

While at Duke, Banks ran the 40 in 4.63 and then 4.61.
