Duke Was First; Others Jump In For Fla. CB

Dionte Ponder is a talented cornerback prospect from Ocala Trinity and he's picked up a few more offers recently.

Dionte Ponder put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season. The talented cornerback prospect helped his Ocala Trinity team make it to the Class 2B state title game. On the recruiting front, he went into the May evaluation period with an offer from Duke and has since added several more.

"In addition to Duke I've picked up offers from Vanderbilt, UCF, Iowa, Indiana, and Rutgers," he said. "Cincinnati is also talking about it."

Ponder, 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, grew up a Miami fan but doesn't have an offer from the Canes.

"I just wanna find a place where I'll feel comfortable and have a chance to play," he said.

Inside the classroom, Ponder claims a 3.6 GPA and hasn't reported a test score yet.
