In-Person Evaluation: Thomas Duarte

Get an in-depth scouting report on Mater Dei athlete Thomas Duarte, one of UCLA's top 2013 targets...

2013 Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei athlete Thomas Duarte is one of the top two-way players in the state. Duarte was easily the top player on the field against Santa Monica, recording three quarterback sacks in the first half alone, while playing outside linebacker and defensive end.

On the offensive side of the ball, he has the size (6-3, 225) and athleticism to be a big receiver that would cause matchup problems for smaller defensive backs or could add some weight and be a passing-catching tight end. Duarte showcased his route running skills with a handful of receptions and a touchdown against Santa Monica.

The four-star athlete looked lean and is in better shape than when we saw him during 7-on-7 tournaments this offseason. With his strong start to the season; look for Duarte to continue to add scholarship offers.
