Western Kentucky quarterback commitment Steven Duncan was among the dozens of recruits on-hand for the Hilltoppers 58-28 win over Conference USA rival Middle Tennessee on Saturday. What he witnessed was the latest dominating performance by an offense that ranks third in the nation in passing yards.
"The offense is a work of art," Duncan told WKU Insider. "I absolutely love it and it excites me that next year I will be playing in it!"
While on his visit, Duncan enjoyed watching pregame from the field level, spent time meeting fellow WKU commitments and did his best to express to other recruits why they should follow his example. He also visited his future campus and had the opportunity to spend extra time with WKU offensive coordinator Tyson Helton.
"The visit went great," he said. "I got to sit down and meet with Coach Helton and go over some film from yesterday's game. It was a great experience to be able to sit in with Coach and I really enjoyed being able to learn about the system and some of the terminology we use."Seven games into his senior season at Ashley Ridge (S.C.), Duncan has helped his team remain undefeated and into the state's Class 4A top ten rankings. In his last outing, his connected for a 57-yard touchdown with 19 seconds remaining to secure a 18-14 come-from-behind victory.
"I don't have my current stats I'm trying to stay away from them and focus on being the best player I can be for my team," he explained. "I love being a senior and leading my guys and the next step for our team is to stay focussed and achieve our first goal to win the region championship this year."
If Ashley Ridge falls short in the state playoffs, Duncan will make a return trip to The Hill for WKU's final regular season game on November 27. However, he hopes those plans are interrupted.
"I plan to be back for the Marshall game but if things work out with this season I will be playing in the state semifinals that night," he said. "Of course, after that I plan to officially visit some time in January."
