E-Town Tight End Has Cats in Top 5

<i>Inside Kentucky</i> was first to report the scholarship offer to Zipp Duncan last month by the Wildcat coaching staff. Tuesday, <i>IK</i> caught up with the Elizabethtown star to check in on his recruitment.

"I went to West Virginia, Alabama, and Tennessee for one day camps," said Duncan. "My Top 5 right now is Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Alabama, and Marshall."

The Wildcats have never really been considered as a top candidate to steal the Elizabethtown High School star, but after having offered him last month, Duncan appears to have gained more interest in them.

"I know a lot about their University," Duncan stated. "My sister attends college there, so I have been there many times. I know a lot about their campus.

Zipp spoke about the other schools in his top five:

Louisville - "It's about 45 minutes from my house. I've been there a lot to see the campus, and I've been there for some games too."

Cincinnati (offer)- "The coaches have told me that I could come in and play early. They are recruiting me real hard."

Alabama - "I like the coaches down there a lot. I took an unofficial visit there in May to the school, and the coaches really made me feel important. They've already asked me to come down for anothre visit."

Marshall (offer)- "They are really recruiting me hard. They were the first team to offer me."

Duncan is definitely keeping his options open, and if he has a leader among his favorites, he is doing a good job of keeping his feelings close to the vest.
