Recruiting: Dupree Set To Sign Wednesday

One last check on one of the Cowboys top commitments in Texas showed that Dallas Skyline High School linebacker Alfred Dupree is ready for Wednesday and a morning signing ceremony at Skyline.

"I'm not sure what time it is but it is going to be in the morning and I am ready to get it done," said Dupree. "I will have to check with Coach (Reginald) Samples."

DuPree, who played primarily defensive end at Skyline but will move to linebacker at Oklahoma State with his 4.65 speed and 6-2, 215 pound frame, is ready not only for football but also academics.

"Getting that degree is important to me," said Dupree. "I will be the first one in my immediate family to get a college degree. I'm going to major in business management for now, but that could change. I have a cousin that went to college and another that is just starting. I know that football has caused me to take the classroom much more seriously."

A recent newspaper article quoted a Skyline coach as saying Dupree could grow into Big 12 defensive end with his frame, and weigh as much as 250 pounds. We found out that if that happens it will likely be because Dupree hits the Chinese buffet restaurants.

"I like Chinese food," said DuPree. "I like beef teriyaki and fried rice."

Sounds good to us.
