UNC in Dutch's top five

Things are heating up for Gonzaga (DC) wide receiver Doug Dutch, who now sits on 19 written offers and five leaders on his list.

"Michigan, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina are my top five schools," says the 6-foot, 190 pounder with 4.34 speed. "Miami is going to offer soon, so they are number six right now. If they do offer, I will just have a top-6. Maryland is probably number seven."

Dutch visits Maryland today for a one-day camp and will attend Florida's camp.

"I also went down to North Carolina for a camp called Project Uplift. I was the only athlete there, and they showed how good their academics are. I spent two nights at that before the camp, and I got to meet some of the current players, and I had a lot of fun."

Another item of note for Dutch, in light of recent events, is how closely he is following the expansion of the ACC.

"When I was growing up, people always said that if you want to be a quarterback or a receiver you need to go to the SEC, so that is why I always liked Florida. Now people are talking about how the ACC will be a great conference with some great teams entering, so there is a mixture in there of teams from the ACC and the SEC."

Off the football field, Dutch carries a 3.8 GPA and has already landed a 1060 SAT. Academics are very important to him, and will play a vital role in his choosing of a university this year.
