Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit standout
Aaron Fryer has set up a second official visit with an eye on
the complete student-athlete experience.
Fryer, a member of the Rivals.com
Top 100 team and the No. 28 running back in the nation, will
be at Duke on Jan. 17.
"It's a real good school, to say the least," he
said. "They've struggled a little bit record-wise this season, but they've
played in a lot of close games. I think they're building in the right
direction, and they feature the running back pretty big in their offense, so
it's a good looking situation to me. They told me that I could be a really
big part of their program."
Fryer had previously visited Boston College (Sept.
6). That leaves him with three official visits to fill. He says Pittsburgh
is likely to get one. The other two will come from a group that includes
Colorado State, South Florida, Vanderbilt, Rutgers, the military academies
and Notre Dame "if they offer."
"I'm just going with the flow right now," he said.
"I'm looking for the best combination of football and academics, not really
in a hurry to do anything."
Boston College remains a slight favorite.
"The other four visits, if I take all four, they'd
have to be pretty good to beat Boston College because I really enjoyed
that," he said. "They've got a real nice football program, some good
tradition, and it's another place where I could get a great education."
Fryer has rushed for 1,650 yards and 21 touchdowns
this season in leading Jesuit to a 10-1 record and the third round of the
playoffs. He's also had 250 yards receiving and two touchdown catches.
