"LSU gave me a verbal offer around Christmas and then I got a written one right before school let out for the summer," said the 6-6, 285 pound four-star prospect. "LSU is in my top five with Duke, Notre Dame, UCLA and Texas. There are some others I am looking at but those would be my top ones right now. I have about 30 offers overall."
Academics and winning are important to Duncan and those are two things that has attracted him to the schools in his top five.
"LSU is the national champions and they have a good chance to get it again," said Duncan, who is fully qualified. "Notre Dame has got a great tradition for football and academics. Duke and UCLA have good academics and so does Texas. Texas also has good football too."
Coaches from Duke and Notre Dame were fortunate enough to get a chance to work with Duncan at camps so that he could work on his overall game. As talented as he is he is aware that there is always room for improvement.
"I have good footwork and I am very fluid in my movement on the line," he said. "I know I can always get better though. I feel like my run blocking and pass blocking are about the same but I like pass blocking better. I have good reach and once I get my hands on you it is over."
After winning only one game last season and picking up Second Team All-Region honors Duncan has much higher expectations for his senior campaign.
"We think we can get a winning season and try to make the playoffs," he said. "I think winning eight games is within reach. Personally, I just want to get better and be a leader."
Sonny's View: Duncan was reportedly listing Notre Dame as his favorite following his trip to South Bend for the Irish's camp. However, when asked to name the schools that stood out he first mentioned LSU and said he did not have a leader at the time. Duncan will be visiting Baton Rouge July 19 and it will be interesting to see how he rates that experience compared to Notre Dame.
Duncan finally lists LSU in top five
