Junior Lineman Taking Trips

Kettering (OH) Fairmont junior offensive tackle Jeff Duncan made a name for himself last summer on the camp circuit, and he has built on that this year. College recruiters have taken notice, and Duncan has taken several unofficial visits.

Jeff Duncan has impressed this season at Kettering (OH) Fairmont, and the junior offensive tackle has definitely hit the radar of college recruiters. This past Saturday, Duncan was at Illinois on an unofficial visit.

"I had a good time at Illinois, and I spoke with Coach (Alex) Golesh," Duncan stated. "Everything was very organized and I have to say it was awesome seeing what Illinois has to offer. They said they are very interested in me, and want to see more film before offering. Most of my film has me going against other top recruits that have offers, so that is in my favor."

"I'm definitely interested in Illinois, and it's a program that has a lot going for them," he added. "I will definitely be following up with them and staying in contact with Coach Golesh."

Although he holds no offers at this time, Duncan has been invited to games by several top schools, and he has taken a few visits.

"I was at Indiana earlier and loved everything about their program," he explained. "They are headed in the right direction, and treated us very well. I toured the campus and loved it, and their offense is very similar to what we run in high school. They want me to stay in touch and I plan on doing that."

"I've also visited Wisconsin, Pittsburgh and Kentucky, and was impressed by all three schools," he continued. "I'm also going to see Boston College in the next month. Wisconsin was just unbelievable, and everything was so big, from the stadium to the players. Pittsburgh was great because they played in Heinz Field, and it was great seeing a professional stadium. Kentucky was beautiful and they treated us great, and I'm very interested in them. I'm also hearing from Nebraska and Michigan State."

Duncan, 6-foot-6, 270-pounds, has shown excellent footspeed and quickness, and is versatile enough to have played every position on the offensive line this season, including tight end.
