Duke Offers Roark A Change of Pace

Three star prospect Matt Roark was previously recruited by Duke - but the new staff has a new pitch for the 6-foot-6 standout athlete from Georgia prospect.

"I'd have to say the visit went well," said Kennesaw (Ga.) North Cobb prospect Matt Roark. "Right now Duke is moving up there with Illinois as a top choice."

Hosted by rising third year receiver Jeremy Ringfield, Roark was previously recruited by the Duke coaching staff, but says he feels more comfortable with the potential of the staff currently occupying the Yoh Center

"The new staff really seems to be made up of strong coaches who can really turn Duke into a winning program. I really do think they can accomplish that, which is different."

Another difference with the staff under Cutcliffe is the position Roark would play should he choose to enroll at Duke

"Duke is recruiting me as a quarterback now, so are Kentucky and Oregon. Wake Forest and Illinois want me as a wide receiver. Honestly at this point I am not really sure which position I want to play in college, but that will be a big part of my decision."

With official visits to Duke, Illinois, Kentucky, and Oregon behind him, Roark will trip back to North Carolina next weekend to visit Wake Forest, before making a decision.

"Maybe by the end of the month," he said.
