Per Brian Dohn:Penn State offered Duncan a year ago, and he remains interested in the Nittany Lions. His contact is with offensive line coach Matt Limegrover, although the contact is now sporadic.

"It's a nice place, it's close to home and they have great coaches," Duncan said. "The competition there is very good. I went for a camp last year and they offered me the same day. I don't talk to the coaches a lot there, but we talk a little bit."
