Acworth (Ga.) Harrison linebacker / fullback Justin Boyle was considering whether or not to take official visits to other schools at one point, despite his verbal commitment to Duke. Is that still the case?
"If Coach Roof is named the permanent head coach then I don't think I'll visit any other schools," said Boyle. "He's proven he can win games in the ACC and he's a really positive guy. Plus, I liked the coaching staff all along, so if they kept him it would really help Duke."
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound recruit was plucked out of SEC country by the Devils, and they've managed to hold off several other programs for months.
"I have offers from South Carolina, Marshall, Louisville, Cincinnati, Duke, Furman, Wofford and Delaware," he said. "I'm pretty sure NC State is going to offer soon too. But like I said -- that isn't going to matter if Coach Roof stays as the head coach."
Louisville was recently at Boyle's home for an in-home visit, and coaches of other schools may do so as well soon.
