Three-star Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit running back
Aaron Fryer took an official
visit to Duke this weekend, and he says the experience further complicated a
recruiting process that was already tricky.
"I didn't know what to expect going to Duke, but they're
up there a little higher than before. I didn't make my decision any easier," he
said. "It was just me and a couple of other guys there this weekend, so we got a
lot of individual attention from the coaches and players and academic advisors.
That was really nice.
"I also liked coach (Carl) Franks' thoughts on how he
wanted the program to be in the future, and how he saw me being a big part of
that. I know that's a place I could play a key role in helping them build their
program, and I'd get a great education."
Fryer, a member of the Rivals.com
Florida Top 100 team and the No.
28 running back in the nation, is also considering Boston College and South
Florida, both of which he has visited. He was scheduled to visit Pitt on Jan.
14, but has cancelled it.
"I'm not sure if I'll take another visit or not, but
Indiana, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Rutgers and Colorado State are all asking me to
come," he said. "Oklahoma came by the school last week and took a film back with
them. I'm kind of waiting to see if something will happen with them."
As a senior at Jesuit, Fryer rushed for more than 2,023
yards and 24 touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 200 yards and two more
