Devils Hosting One This Weekend

It's a slowish weekend as far as recruiting goes for the Blue Devils. However there's one prospect making his way to Durham for an official visit.

A week after hosting four prospects, and receiving two subsequent commitments, the Duke coaching staff will welcome another Georgia prospect to campus in the form of Thomaston (Ga.) Upson-Lee standout Tunde Fariyike.

Fariyike is a 6-foot-4, 280 pound left offensive tackle prospect who has been recruited by a number of schools in and around the Peach State as well as North Carolina State and Auburn. In addition he has an offer from East Carolina.

In the weight room Fariyike reports a squat max of 405 pounds, a power clean of 260 pounds and a personal best forty yard dash of 5.0.

Not only an offensive tackle, Fariyike has also spent time at defensive tackle, though the Duke coaching staff appears to project the Georgia product as an offensive tackle.

As a senior Fariyike earned second team Region 1-AAAA Coaches' All-Region honors as a junior. This past season he upped that honor to First Team recognition.
