Mikey Dukes...A Must Read

From The Moultrie News...an open letter written by Michael Dukes. It gives some insight into what kind of player we are getting and also tells of how our staff builds relationships with these kids. It’s long, but we’ll worth it.

Well, From this 68 year old tiger grad I have to say that this is one of the best written and thought out pieces I have ever read. He will have no problem with his freshman English classes and will no doubt be pushing for playing time on the field soon as well. Thank you Mr. Dukes for sharing your recruiting experiences with us and for being "All In" as a Tiger.....


Well worth the read . . .

Thanks for posting JJP... I sure hope there’s a couple people on this board that post about him being a fall back for Ealy etc with whom I was discussing the point on why I was so stoked about getting him even more so than Ealy.

Ealy has a good film that’s impressive no doubt , but Dukes is all in on Clemson and the Clemson way. No doubt in my mind with Dukes raw ability, once he learns the offense and whether blocking, receiving, or running... he’s leaving it all out on the field every play.

That me friend is why I love this guy and imo he’ll pass some great talent on the depth chart before it’s all said and done.

kerigantoo® I tend to agree with you...this guy is gonna work his tail off and leave his heart on the field. I’ve watched his film and I think he should be rated higher than he is.

We will develop him and I think he may become one of the great ones to come through Clemson. This kid is special.

You’re correct JJPTigerPaw !!!! You said it better than I ever could. No doubt in my mind, had he gone to a prep school or img etc and done a lot of camps, he’d been a high 4 or maybe even a 5.

As you said, once the coaches work their development system on him, watch out. I remember people saying “who’s this ETN recruit...” look how that’s turned out!!!!

I think ETN was the same situation if I recall correctly. 4 Star at a smaller school that lacked some of the high level competition.

He still had offers from some big players, but we got him late.

A couple of solid RBs in this class. Don’t forget about Dixon though. He will play allot this year with Feast and ETN.

Oh, absolutely. LynJ could turn out to be the best ever. Reminds me of the Depth we had at DE last year... everyone capable at any time. Perhaps the best ever depth we’ve had at RB.

Thanks for the reminder!!!!

Sounds like he has a great Mom and Dad, also. You know I thought I saw his Dad brush away a tear in the commitment video.

Wonderful article. Sounds like a perfect family for Clemson. It's great to get the players who truly want to be here. Unusual that a young person would wait this long to get an offer. That must have been hard on his ego!

New math equation at Clemson. Swinney/Elliott + M D # 2 = 100% all in Tiger.
