The two offers that strongside defensive end Jeremy Beal of Carrollton (Texas) Creekview may be two opportunities, but Beal is already trimming that two team list down for the moment.
Wyoming and Duke are the offers in hand for the 6-foot-2, 243-pound Beal, but one school has quite a lead on the other. The two-star Texan has some preferences about location that has him looking in one direction.
"Wyoming I'm not as interested in but I'm very interested in Duke," Beal said. "I like Wyoming as a school, I just don't like the location. There is just not a lot going on around the campus."

"I did talk to them this month though when they called and also Alabama, Duke, and Iowa State."
What Duke has in academics is what Beal is interested in the most. His visits reflect his early favorites.
"I do know that OSU, Duke, Iowa State, and Alabama are schools I'm looking at," Beal said. "I went on a Texas A&M unofficial visit by myself a while back. I haven't though a ton about visits though to be honest."
Asking Beal who might be next is a question that really has no clear answer.
"All the schools want to see my tapes and I've been doing pretty good this season actually," he said. "We'll see what comes of that."
