In-State DB Nearly A Blue Devil

Ibn Ali says a commitment to Duke is likely on the way in the very near future.

Salisbury defensive back Ibn Ali is a player some believed could see his recruitment blossom after the week, but he was worried that his one offer may not still be on the table.

"I'm hearing from Duke, North Carolina, Elon, Appalachian State, but I only have one offer right now - Duke," said Ali. "After Coach Roof got fired, I didn't know if my offer was still good or not. A coach came to my house and said that everything was going to stay, but they are waiting on a new coach."

With the offer still valid, Ali is leaning hard to becoming a Blue Devil at some point.

"I am leaning real hard towards Duke just because of the academic part of it. I am really tough on academics, so it probably will be Duke unless somebody new comes up.

"I am probably going to be waiting until January to commit, but my visit to Duke is January 11th."
