Does Duncan have any favorite schools?
"My favorite schools are the colleges that have offered me," Duncan said. "They are the schools that are showing me the most interest.
"I want to go to a school where I can compete for playing time. I know if given the chance that I can do the job.
"Location isn't going to be a big factor," Duncan said. "I'm from East Cleveland, Ohio so it doesn't matter if I stay in-state or travel a long distance to go to college."
