2010 DB Enjoyed Duke Visit

With a finite number of scholarships still remaining in the class of 2010, there are a few Blue Devil prospects still hopeful for an offer. One of those is in-state safety prospect Chandler Wrightenberry who was on hand to see the game against Virginia Tech.

"I was able to visit this weekend and watch the game," said Chandler Wrightenberry. "I really thought Duke played well and it shows that they are moving in the right direction to have a chance to win against the No. 6 team in the country."

Wrightenberry, who has been involved with the Blue Devils for a while after attending the program's junior day in February, says the Duke coaches have told him they are still evaluating him, but there's no word on a scholarship offer at this point.

"They are going to have someone come watch one of my games. Until then they can't really do anything in terms of an offer."

With a Duke offer uncertain, Wrightenberry has scheduled a trip to Elon and will also be working with the coaches at Appalachian State to make a visit to Boone.

Measuring out at 6' and 190 pounds, Wrightenberry will likely play cornerback at the next level, but has spent time at both safety and MIKE linebacker for Roberson this year.

"He's just a smart football player," said Roberson head coach Jim Beatty. "We can put him at different positions, because he's smart and we don't have to spend a lot of time explaining things to him."

While he's officially classified as an athlete on most recruiting boards, Beatty concurs that defensive back is where his star player will likely end up next fall.

"I think his height is going to hurt him a little bit, but he plays hard and he'll hit you," Beatty said. "… He reads the offense real well. When we need him to run the alley on a run play, he's there. He's got good hips, can open up and get back on the deep ball."
