This year is no exception, as four-star wideout Albert Dukes is argubably Florida's top wide receiver prospect.
His stellar senior season quieted any critics who may have had questions about Dukes.
"It was good," Dukes said. "I led Palm Beach County in all the receiving categories... catches, yards, and touchdowns. Then I won the MVP this weekend in the All-Star game down here. I had like 130 yards 8 catches and a touchdown."
With his career at Glades Central over, Albert is now focusing on his future, and has a trio of schools that he's really interested in.
"I'm looking mainly at Ohio State, NC State, and Miami. I went to Ohio State in December and liked it up there. Now I go to NC State on the 23rd, and I might go to Florida on the 30th then maybe an unofficial visit to Miami."
Dukes, who has offers from the Wolfpack, Buckeyes, and Gators, has two programs who are intriguing because of their offenses.
"I'd have to say that Ohio State and NC State are the most appealing. NC State uses a lot of receivers on the field at one time and throw the ball around. I know Ohio State's trying to do the same."
This week he's talked with NC State and expects an in-home visit from Ohio State.
"The main coach I've talked to this week is Doc Holliday from NC State. We talked about the visit this weekend and how I played in the bowl game. I like Doc because he's straight with me."
"A coach from Ohio State is coming in too. I think on Thursday he'll be here."
It seems that right now, Ohio State and NC State are even and out front of the others. Could a commit come with a strong visit to the Wolfpack?
"No, I probably won't commit on the visit. I'm going to come home and think things over before making a decision or anything."
Author's Note: Dukes is a fast-rising prospect who will likely consider Florida and Miami even harder as signing day approaches. The Hurricanes could offer as a defensive back, but I don't think he's interested. NC State Safety Garland Heath will host Albert, and they are close friends. Another note, QB Brent Schaeffer will also be in Raleigh this weekend, and Dukes is fond of Schaeffer as a quarterback.
