All three Duke commitments from the class of 2007 have cracked the Top 50 prospects list released by Scout.com on Monday.
Three of the Blue Devils' commitments at linebacker -- Adam Banks
(45), Justin Wilkerson
(49), and Damian Thornton
(50) -- appear on the preseason Top 50 list for prospects in the state of North Carolina. Duke
was recently named to the top overall prospect, Greg Little
's, final list of nine programs.
"This may be the deepest year ever for the state of North Carolina," said Scout.com Southern Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit. "The state has several quality players at the top, led by superb athlete Greg Little, but as many as eighty players could sign with a Division I-A program in February.
"While Little holds the top spot, a case could be made for each of the top five players to grab the number one position by the end of the year"
